Cartridge-activated hand power tools also known as Powder-Actuated Tools (PATs) have become a popular choice for those who need to do a lot of work quickly. They are powered by small cartridges that are inserted into the tool’s motor. When the tool is activated, the cartridge fires and provides power to the tool. This type of power tool is ideal for use in tight spaces or where there is a need to move quickly. They are also lightweight and easy to use, making them a great choice for those who are doing a lot of work on one project.
Some of the most common hand power tool injuries involve cuts and scrapes, but there are also other types of injuries that can occur. Some of these other types of injuries include:
– Blast Injuries: These are rare, but can occur when a cartridge-activated hand power tool explodes. This can cause serious injury to the hand and even death.
– Electric Shock Injuries: These can also be very dangerous, as they often cause serious burns and shocks. They can also lead to paralysis if not treated quickly.
– Hand Tool Shot Injuries: These can happen when someone accidentally pulls the trigger on while holding a cartridge activated power tool. This can result in serious injury, especially if the cartridge is loaded.
If you have been injured by a Cartridge-Activated Hand Power Tool, you should contact an attorney. This type of tool is dangerous and can cause serious injuries. An attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve.
