Product Liability or Personal Negligence?

Man’s arm is severed by Makita Brand saw.

A district court judge allows for a miter saw to be thoroughly examined in an attempt to prove whether or not it led to the severing of a man’s arm. Home Depot and tool manufacturer Makita Inc. defense attorneys were given permission to have a miter saw taken apart to determine if it indeed was defective and caused personal injury to a Florida man, who is suing both companies under product liability litigation. Meanwhile, Home Depot and Makita Inc. lawyers claim that the man suffered his personal injuries because he either used the saw carelessly or tried to modify it in some way after buying it. A thorough examination of the saw was carried out by the case investigators, which includes nondestructive testing to see if any of the internal parts where indeed faulty or altered. The investigation led to findings that the saw was indeed tampered with after purchase. A verdict to determine the outcome of the case has yet to be reached.
