Chainsaw Injuries

During the fall and winter months, people may wish to stock up on firewood for use in chimneys, bonfires, and outdoor fire pits. While some people may choose to purchase pre-cut firewood, some individuals may choose to cut their own firewood. In such cases, people often use tools like axes and chainsaws to cut the wood into manageable pieces for transportation and use.

While power tools like chainsaws may save time and effort for the user, they may also put the person at risk of serious injury if the tool is defective or fails to operate in the manner intended by the manufacturer. If you or someone you know has been injured by a defective chainsaw or other type of power tool, contact the Lake Geneva defective product lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874.

Chainsaw Safety

If you intend on operating a chainsaw, it is important to:

  • Be sure to pick the right horsepower, weight, length, and chain speed for the job you are going to perform
  • Make sure to read all instructions included with the tool
  • Sharpen the chain on a regular basis
  • Properly clean and store the chainsaw after each use
  • Wear safety equipment at all times, including goggles, gloves, and protective clothing when using a chainsaw

If a person is injured because of a flaw in workmanship, design, or manufacturing, the individual may be able to pursue legal action against the company responsible. He or she may be eligible for compensation for medical bills, pain, suffering, and other damages.
