Grinder Accidents

Grinders, also known as angle grinders, side grinders, or disc grinders, are a powerful tool used to abrasive cutting, smoothing, and polishing a wide variety of materials and are commonly seen in machine shops and construction sites. While there is an expectation that these tools will work as designed and the safety features will keep operators and bystanders free of injuries, accidents can still occur.

The Purpose of Grinders 

Handheld grinders are typically powered through an electric motor or compressed air and are used for a multitude of purposes and on many different materials. Grinders can be equipped with different discs and blades, which can include diamond blades, wire brushes, and stone depending on the job at hand. 

Grinders are made by a number of manufacturers, including Makita, Black and Decker, Ingersoll Rand, and Bosch. Grinder designers and manufacturers owe their consumers a duty to provide a safe product, but unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. 

Grinder Accident Injuries 

Even with safety features in place, grinders are still a dangerous tool, especially if they are used in an inappropriate manner or if they are defective in design. The most common grinder injuries include:

  • Eye injuries-Flying debris, especially larger pieces, can damage the eyes, even with protective eyewear in place.
  • Lacerations-Both the worker using the grinder and bystanders can come into contact with the blades being used or they could be cut by the debris that is produced.
  • Burns-Grinders become extremely hot when in use and workers can become severely burned if the equipment overheats or the grinder’s safety features fail.
  • Amputations-Either due to a direct cut from the grinder, or as a result of an infection because of a grinder laceration, amputations are common injuries seen following grinder accidents.

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.
