Air-powered nail guns offer construction workers, laborers, and hobbyists unparalleled convenience, but a growing number of injury and wrongful death suits suggest that the devices are too risky. One such suit was recently filed by the widow of construction worker Manuel Murrillo against nail gun manufacturer Hitachi-Koki U.S.A. Murrillo died in 2006 after accidentally puncturing his chest with a nail gun. The suit claims that the gun’s defective design emphasized speed over safety.
