I guess this has probably been said 100 times today but I will say it again: When are people going to take responsibility for their own stupidity? Saws are made to cut, they can be dangerous. You have to be careful. You have to think when you use one. I find this law suit really frustrating.
Because some pinhead about 15 yrs ago spilled coffee all over her lap, I cannot get a hot cup of coffee today.
I guess we'll be getting saws with some kind of useless plastic "safe blade" next. Or the Saw Stop--which I read will up the price of all saws $200 or $300. You and I and all responsible wood-workers will all bear the cost of a small number of careless users. (Hopefully it won't come to that..).
Someone here referenced the use of seatbelts, airbags etc I guess as a comparison to this saw accident. That is total baloney. The difference is this: seatbelts, airbags, etc almost always provide protection to the sensible, responsible and careful drivers from the IDIOTS who are on the road who are irresponsible and careless which is totally different scenario from one person, in a garage, using his table-saw.
The only thing Mr Osorio needs protection from is himself.
