While nailguns have improved the efficiency of construction workers, they have also increased the likelihood of construction site injuries. Statistics show that many nailgun related injuries occur in the non-dominant hand of the nailgun operator.
Nailguns are powerful devices, some capable of shooting a nail deep into concrete at over 1,400 feet per second. Unfortunately, many employers fail to instruct their construction employees in the proper use of nailguns. In addition, some nailgun manufacturers produce substandard guns with inadequate warnings.
See your doctor if you have been injured by a nailgun. In addition, it may be important to contact an attorney
who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits
within which you must commence suit.
