Black and Decker Table Saw Injures Hands and Fingers

December 5, 2013

The Black and Decker Corporation is undergoing a series of lawsuits from consumers claiming received injuries caused by a table saw. The company is alleged to designed, making, and selling a defective product. According to the lawsuit, the saw is said to not be equipped with a device called a riving knife—a small piece of metal that reduces the chances of the wood jerking back and pulling the operator’s hands into the blades of the saw. Because of the lack of this device in these Black and Decker table saws, many have had severe and permanent injuries to their fingers and hands from unexpected contact with the saw blade.
