The product liability lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are pursuing potential table saw lawsuits for individuals throughout the United States who may have experienced an injury due to a lack of available safety features provided by manufacturers of many table saws sold since 2003.

Many serious table saw injuries would have been avoided if manufacturers had used SawStop or other flesh-sensing technology.  This may have prevented common table saw problems like:

  • Amputation of the Finger or Hand
  • Nerve Damage
  • Severe Lacerations
  • Bleeding Complications

Free consultations and claim evaluations are provided to help individuals throughout the United States determine if they may be entitled to financial compensation through a table saw injury settlement. To review a potential table saw injury case for yourself or a loved one, request a free consultation and claim evaluation.

  • Black & Decker
  • DeWALT
  • SKIL
  • Ryobi
  • Bosch
  • Other Table Saws

Table Saw Safety Problems and SawStop Technology

Each year in the United States, more than 75,000 people suffer a table saw injury, with about 3,000 people left with permanent injury, such as an amputated finger or hand.

There is available table saw safety technology that may prevent most of these serious injuries, allowing the blade to instantly stop the second it comes into contact with a finger, hand or other flesh.

SawStop is a table saw feature first demonstrated in 2000, using technology similar to that found in touch-lighting systems. As soon as the blade comes into contact with flesh, the system detects the change in current and deploys an aluminium brake that stops the blade within five milliseconds.

In most cases, this eliminates the risk of a finger amputation or other major injury from a table saw, leaving users with only a slight nick at worst.

The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) awarded SawStop a safety commendation in July 2001. However, many power tool manufacturers refused to incorporate the injury-prevention system into their table saws.

While the power tool industry has known about this safer alternative design for years, manufacturers decided to sell unreasonably dangerous table saws.  As a result, manufacturers may be liable for the consequences of many table saw problems experienced in recent years.

Allegations Raised in Table Saw Injury Lawsuits
Manufacturers of many table saws sold in recent years placed their desire for profits before consumer safety by failing to include available safety technology that may have prevented many severe and disfiguring injuries. Some of the common allegations raised in table saw class action lawsuits and individual injury claims being pursued nationwide include:

  • Failure to include SawStop or other flesh-sensing technology on table saws;
  • Engaging in a group boycott of injury mitigation technology;
  • Conspiring to prevent available safety features from becoming part of the industry standard;
  • Selling unreasonably dangerous table saws when safer alternative designs were feasible;
  • Failure to adequately warn about the lack of table saw safety features included on their products;
