Pittsburgh PA Defective Chain Saw Attorney
Pennsylvania Product Liability Lawyer
Manufacturers of power tools such as chain saws, table saws and other types of moving blades know they are held to a high standard of liability when it comes to safe design, manufacture and safety warnings for their products. Power tools such as chain saws, made for the consumer market, must include design for safe starting, safe operations and emergency shut off. Manufacturers may be held liable for damages — if the user was operating the chain saw in a reasonable manner, for the intended use of the product — even if the operator was not following specific manufacturer’s instructions.
You Have a Right to Be Safe, If You Are Using the Equipment Safely
Too often, manufacturers will cut corners on consumer safety, unless or until a court intervenes and orders full and fair money damages for consumers injured by their products. Most manufacturers abide by the high safety standards expected of them. In recent years, however, some chain saw manufacturers, such as Alpina, have been taken to court and ordered to pay significant damages because of unsafe design and insufficient safety features.
