HAVE YOU BEEN INJURED BY A MAKITA ANGLE GRINDER?
Badly designed and defective power tools often cause severe injuries to users. This is especially true of cutting tools, such as saws and grinders. Makita is one manufacturer of such tools, including an angle grinder that users have alleged are defective and dangerous. Makita angle grinders are difficult to operate because of a poorly designed switch, and they can result in “kickback” during operation. This can cause the angle grinder to fall from the user’s hand and cause laceration or cutting injuries to the user’s hands, leg, foot and other parts of the body. One of Makita’s angle grinder models does have a feature to make it stop operating upon release from the user’s hand, which can prevent injury. However, Makita has another angle grinder—model 9557NB—that does not stop operating upon release because of its propensity to lock-on during operation, which makes it highly dangerous.
