Sacramento & Elk Grove Nail Gun Accidents Attorney

On modern construction sites, nail guns have practically replaced the hammer. These tools use huge amounts of pressure to efficiently place nails in any desired surface, but a malfunction can be disastrous. It’s not unheard of a nail gun to discharge, even if the lock was in position, and this type of bad engineering can result in serious harm. Nail gun makers have a responsibility to distribute products that are safe because recalling them may not be enough.

A functional safety lock, that can withstand the massive pressure output by a nail gun is fundamental in avoiding such injuries:

Nail gun accidents can happen because of misuse or bad design. When they do happen, it’s usually one of these cases:

  • Bump-firing the gun without paying attention
  • Holding one’s hand behind the nailing surface
  • Puncturing the hand when handling an unsafe nail gun
  • Accidental discharge next to someone
  • Nail fired like a projectile after the gun slipped from the intended surface
