Pa. man killed in riding mower accident

A Pittsburgh-area man was killed Friday, Aug. 30, in an accident involving a riding mower. The accident, which occurred in Lawrence County around 6 p.m., was reported when someone called 911 after an individual flipped over on his mower. The unidentified man was pronounced dead at the scene. An accident such as this may result in a product liability claim. If, for instance, the mower was a defective product or had an insufficient warning, the survivor's family could possibly have a valid case against the negligent manufacturer.

In Pennsylvania, the responsibility for a product's construction lies with the manufacturer and the companies or individuals that created the parts. This includes anybody who had a hand in creating or designing the product. The distributor or store that sold the product may also be liable if they knew of the defect and didn't report the issue or inform the buyer. The seller may also be held responsible if they didn't remove the item following a product recall.
