Construction trades tend to be physically demanding with plenty of hazardous conditions everywhere you turn.
One major danger involves power tools, including their improperly manufactured batteries and other moving parts. Miter saws, concrete saws, even jig saws can present major issues if not properly stored, or used properly with training.
Defective power tools, including those which an employer has failed to identify, may explode or electrocute the operator. Instead of finishing up your company’s major building product, you’re stuck at home healing from a massive electrocution. Compass Law Group P.C. are Los Angeles power tool accidents attorneys that understand what you’re going through.
Don’t let an insurance company saw your compensation in half. Our attorneys fight to get every penny you deserve.

The more common causes of tool accidents, including non-lethal amputations, include:
