Makita Table Saw Gives Yuri Gohen Disfigured Fingers

January 14, 2014

In a newly filed civil action Yuri Gohen, a Pennsylvania Bucks county man, describes how his fingers were severely injured while he was using the table saw manufactured by the company Makita Corp. Gohen attests that the table saw design is flawed and led to this permanent and extremely serious injury he obtained from operating their product. Because of an ineffective blade guard—which is easily removed and not used by many consumers—and the lack of a riving knife—a device known to reduce or eliminate kickbacks of the wood—Gohen complains that Makita Corp. has designed a negligent product. He attests that although there is technology such as the SawStop (which detects human flesh and causes the blade to stop spinning immediately upon contact) Makita has failed to use any of these safety features in their products. This failure has resulted in many permanent and impairing injuries to many consumers across the US. Click here to view a full article about this case.

Legal Commentary
From a civil standpoint, our firm has represented numerous victims from table saw accidents. We represent victims of table saws built by a variety of companies such as Makita Corp., Black & Decker, Bosch, Craftsman, Delta, DeWalt, Grizzly, Jet, Kwikset, and more. If you or a loved one has been affected by any of these products we encourage you to consult with one of our table saw attorneys as soon as possible. Although no dollar amount can make up for permanent injuries and results of table saw accidents, a successful civil claim pursued against the responsible party will ensure that the victims are not burdened with costly medical expenses, and will hopefully compensate them for their pain, suffering, and lost wages for time missed from work. If you or a loved one has been effected by injuries from a table saw please call the experienced attorneys at Fears | Nachawati. You can reach us by emailing the lead table saw lawyer, Majed Nachawati at mn@fnlawfirm.com, or by calling our office at 1.866.705.7584.
