PHILADELPHIA – A Philadelphia couple are suing Home Depot and Black & Decker, alleging that the husband was injured while using a defective piece of machinery.
Carl Anderson and Valerie Flores filed a complaint on April 24 in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas against Dewalt, Dewalt Industrial Tool Co., Dewalt Inc., Black & Decker (U.S.) Inc., and others alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, Carl Anderson was injured May 10, 2017, while using an allegedly defective circular saw designed, sold, manufactured and or assembled by the defendants. The suit states Carl Anderson's left hand came in contact with the blade when the saw jolted back while in use.
The plaintiffs allege the saw lacked a proper safety guard.
The plaintiffs are seeking all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. They are represented by Thomas F. Sacchetta of Sacchetta & Baldino.
The case was removed to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania on May 10 by the defendants.
