Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If a manufacturer makes a product with inadequate safety warnings or inadequate safety features to prevent injury, then they are liable under product liability law for all harm caused to the consumer. Your wife would be able to sue the manufacturer for all damages to her hand and also pain and suffering typically 4-7 times the amount of all of the actual damages she sustained.
At this point you need to keep the device and you need to go to a local product liability law attorney and they would be the type of attorney used to sue manufacturers for these types of injuries.
