Accident with Saw
INDUSTRY: Product Liability
GRAPHIC TYPE: Animation
When a contractor, after removing the blade guard from our client’s table saw, nearly severed his fingers and then sued claiming unsafe design, our 3D animation suites were prepared for the challenge. First we assembled a male model of correct height and weight.
Then we scanned the actual piece of wood (including grain pattern) he was attempting to cut into our modeling station. Then employing detailed human factors data from the expert, we accurately recreated the unsafe use of our client’s table saw, showcasing how the plaintiff’s fingers came into contact with the blade (hidden by the wood) from several angles.
