“By his own admission he knew the technology was available (for table saws) but what he doesn’t admit is that even the originator of the technology (SawStop) failed to ever place it into a miter saw – which was the tool used during the unfortunate accident. If the patent-owner hadn’t come up with a reason, method, or incentive to develop a SawStop-enabled Miter saw, then it is unreasonable to assert that Bosch should have done so.” – Bosch Tools Dragged Into SawStop-centric Lawsuit
The injured man had sued Bosch because they failed to include a safety device on the miter saw he was using. By bringing this case to court he admits that he know this technology was available but still failed to purchase the SawStop to prevent the accident he is suing Bosch over.
This is a consequential claim because the injured man believes he was harmed due to the lack of safety equipment on his saw.
By using this claim the victim puts the blame of not including a safety device onto the manufacturer. Even though he felt like the company should have included the SawStop it’s up to the customer if they want the extra safety device that can cost them $150-$200.
