Mower lift blamed for woman's crushed fingers

By Philip Gonzales | Feb 11, 2019

SCRANTON — A consumer is suing Mojack Distributors LLC, a mower lift manufacturer, citing alleged negligence and strict product liability.

Ann Owca filed a complaint on Jan. 25 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania against Mojack Distributors LLC, alleging the mower lift manufacturer failed to manufacture a product that was safe for its intended use.

According to the complaint, on April 28, 2018, plaintiff was using defendant's Mojack HDL Mower Lift at her residence when her right hand got caught and crushed in a nip point between the locking bar teeth and the product name. 

She claims she sustained severe and permanent injury to the tops of her left index and middle fingers, and that she was required to undergo extensive medical treatment and was caused to endure pain and suffering and mental anguish. The plaintiff holds Mojack Distributors LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly negligently manufactured, distributed and placed into the stream of commerce the defective mower lift.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in her favor in the amount in excess of $75,000, plus costs and delay damages. She is represented by James Wetter of Dougherty Leventhal & Price LLP in Kingston.

The U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania Case No. is 3:19-cv-00142-MEM.
