Nail Gun Accidents
When you get hurt, we go to work
Construction workers use a wide variety of power tools on the job. One of the most common is the nail gun. This tool helps workers drive nails through wood or metal quickly and efficiently. But a nail gun accident can leave a construction worker with a serious injury. The worker is left needing medical treatment and may lose income if unable to work.
The workers' compensation attorneys at Kotlar, Hernandez & Cohen, LLC help injured workers in New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania get the benefits they need and deserve following a construction accident and other injuries at work. These benefits include all necessary medical treatment as well as wage benefits while the worker can't return to the job.
Nail guns are used for roofing, flooring, finishing, framing and other projects. The different types of nail guns include pneumatic, electric and gas-powered. But all are very powerful tools that can cause serious injury if there's an accident. A nail can puncture part of the body, resulting in damage to muscles, tendons, nerves, bones, the spinal cord or internal organs.
Workers injured in nail gun accidents may require extensive medical treatment that leaves them unable to work for months or longer. Medical expenses can become overwhelming very quickly. This comes at a time when injuries leave the worker unable to return to work, resulting in a loss of income. It can be hard on families to get by during this time.
Our team knows how to get results
In New Jersey, workers' compensation benefits are supposed to provide injured workers with the medical treatment they need, as well as temporary wages while unable to work. But it is rarely that simple. Employers can dispute claims. Insurance companies can deny treatment.
