Many Types of Nail Gun Accidents Can Cause Serious Injuries
There are different types of nail gun accidents. A blowout is when nail hits a knot in the wood and is blown back out in the other direction. A double fire is when a second nail is accidentally released. A miss is when the nail does not make contact and becomes airborne. And if the operator accidentally hits the safety contact, several nails can be fired unexpectedly.
During a nail gun accident, a nail can become sharp projectile that can cause significant injuries to the hands, fingers, arms, legs, feet, knees, head or neck. In some cases, the skin is punctured, causing only minor injuries. But in other cases, the nail can damage tendons and nerves, fracture bones or damage internal organs.
Our Workers' Compensation Lawyers Can Help You Fight For Compensation
A nail gun injury at the workplace entitles you to workers' compensation benefits. These benefits should cover the cost of all reasonable and necessary medical treatment. In addition, you are eligible to receive partial wages during the time you are not able to work because of your injury. These benefits can help you get by until you are able to work again.
But employers and insurance companies often challenge claims to try to pay you as little as possible. Our attorneys can fight on your behalf to get you the full amount of benefits you should receive. Our firm has been helping injured workers for years. We know the system and know how to build a strong case that gets results.
