Table saws, also known as bench saws, is typically a woodworking tool consisting of a circular blade that protrudes from the top of the table and is powered by an electric motor. While a table saw is designed to cut through wood, sheet plastic, aluminum, and brass with ease, it can be dangerous and deadly to the human body, with thousands of people losing digits and limbs every year.

Created in 2003, SawStop was designed to sense electrical conductivity and would stop the movement of the blade within 1/200th of a second of detection. Because wood is a poor conductor of electricity and the human body conducts electricity much easier when SawStop senses that human flesh has made contact with the blade, it will stop the blade before more extensive damage can occur.
This technology has the potential to prevent serious injuries and save limbs, but many tables saw manufacturers do not use SawStop in the production of its products because it would increase the cost by $100 per unit.
While workers bear a measure of responsibility for taking the proper precautions to keep themselves safe, when a table saw manufacturer refuses to make their products safe, they may be held responsible for their negligence.
Loss of a limb is extremely painful and can be life-altering. A victim of a table saw accident may be unable to return to work and could receive compensation for lost wages, disability, disfigurement, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of normal life, to name a few.
If you or a loved one has suffered injuries due to negligence on the job site, 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.
