Lathe Accidents

A lathe is a tool that rotates and shapes a piece that is being worked on, which could be wood, metal, or another material, by turning the material against changeable cutting tools. Typically, lathes are equipped with an array of safety features to protect workers, however when these safety devices fail or are installed improperly, accidents can occur.

Common Lathe Injuries

Lathes are used in both industrial and smaller shop settings and they can be one of the most dangerous tools used. Accidents involving lathes result in hundreds of serious workplace injuries and deaths every year due to material kickbacks, flying chips from the materials being worked on, and hair, fingers, or clothing being caught in the machine. This often occurs when safety devices are defective, missing, or have been altered to increase the productivity of a lathe. 

The most common types of lathe injuries include:

  • Amputations
  • Nerve damage
  • Loss of vision
  • Electrocution
  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Spinal injuries 

Injuries from a lathe accident can severely alter the life of the victim, including disability, disfigurement, loss of the ability to work, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and wrongful death. 

If you or a loved one has suffered injuries due to negligence on the job site or a defective product, an experienced personal injury lawyer can review your claim and determine if there were unsafe working conditions, potential OSHA violations, and other hazards that may have existed at the time of your accident. They will also determine who may be liable for your injuries and damages and what compensation you may be entitled to.
