PITTSBURGH — A worker is suing Stanley Black & Decker Inc., an industrial tool manufacturer, citing alleged negligence.
David Adams filed a complaint on Dec. 4 in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas against Stanley Black & Decker Inc., alleging the industrial tool manufacturer negligently placed in the stream of market a defective circular saw.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 1, 2015, he was using a Black & Decker Builder's Sawcat circular saw when he was injured.
He suffered injuries including but not limited to fractures to his right thumb, index and long finger metacarpals and lacerations of his flexor tendons and extensor tendons, the suit says. The plaintiff holds Stanley Black & Decker Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide adequate instructions and warnings associated with the use of the circular saw.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in his favor in an amount exceeding the applicable arbitration limits of the court, exclusive of costs and interest. He is represented by Jason Schiffman of Schiffman Firm LLC in Pittsburgh.
The Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas Case No. is 3:18-cv-00244-KRG.
