If I have a blender/chopper and was seriously injured using it, can I sue?

Question Details: This machine will only go together one way and come apart one way. I had already went through one so bought another; I was very familiar with the machine. One day I went to chop some ice and after I was done I stopped the motor and waited for blades to quit turning. However, when I went to pick up motor off top so I could remove lid and blades the motor, lid blades everything came off because the blades had jumped off track and got hung up in the motor which untwisted the lid and kept the motor to where with the slip of a finger start back up. It almost severed 3 of my fingers. I had to have surgery to fix the blood vessels, ligaments tendons and saw up each finger then required a second surgery on my middle finger where the surgeon had to make me a whole new ligament so I could move it. I still do not have full feeling and function in my pointer finger.
