Plaintiff, a bricklayer-carpenter, age 42, sustained a nearly complete amputation of his left hand, while using a power miter saw found to be unreasonably dangerous due to a lack of a right side lower blade guard. Plaintiff’s expert was the invertor and designer of the 10-inch Black & Decker Power Miter Box Saw ( Model 7717, Type 1) testified he designed guards for both sides but for marketing reasons Black & Decker omitted the right side guard.
