Safer Saws- Belldere

Personal Injury Lawyers:

A) “Every year, there are over 40,000 table saw injuries, resulting in more than 4,000 amputations. Table saws cause more injuries than any other woodworking tool. Although SawStop safety technology has been around for more than ten years, not all table saw manufacturers have adopted it. In fact, the world’s largest tool manufacturers rejected it.”

B) There are many claims made in this paragraph.

  1. “Every year, there are over 40,000 table saw injuries…”
  2. “… resulting in more than 4,000 amputations.”
  3. “Table saws cause more injuries than any other woodworking tool.”
  4. “… not all table saw manufacturers have adopted it.”
  5. “In fact, the worlds largest tool manufacturers rejected it.”

C)

  1. The type of claim being used in the first sentence is a cause and effect claim. Because there are 40,000 table saw injuries every year, it resulted in more than 4,000 amputations
  2. Another claim would be that 3,4, and 5 are factual claims.

D) The accuracy of this paragraph would be spot on in certain areas. They have the facts that there are more injuries from table saws than any other woodworking tool and not all table saw manufacturers have adopted it. This would be accurate because its a fact.

E) With the first sentence it states 40,000 table saw injuries resulting in more than 4,000 amputations, but it doesn’t state if the amputations were because of the table saw or for medical reasons. they also give you the fact about how the worlds largest tool manufacturer rejected the SawStop, they don’t state a specific reason to why they rejected it? Was it because it causes more injuries than any other woodworking tool or maybe because of the cost and the company possibly having to raise the price of the product? They are too broad and not specific enough with the fact given.
