There is no shortage of construction work going on in the metro Atlanta and North Georgia area. Construction sites use a variety of tools and equipment, many of which can be dangerous if defective or not maintained properly. Where there is construction work happening, there is always the risk of an accident, either to a construction worker or a bystander. When a construction worker is injured as the result of the use of a defective nail gun, he may be eligible to file a third-party lawsuit against the manufacturer of the nail gun and other parties.
Nail guns are staple tools on construction sites. A nail gun is a handy and effective tool that makes many construction tasks easier and more efficient to perform. However, these tools are also associated with thousands of injuries every year.
According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, as many as 37,000 persons are injured in nail gun accidents every year. As many as seventy percent of these injuries occur on construction sites, while the remaining occur when nail guns are used by home owners as part of DIY projects.
