DELAND – A Volusia County man alleges he was injured due to a defective masonry blade.
Robert S. Lyon filed a complaint on Sept. 2 in the 7th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida - Volusia County against the Home Depot U.S.A. Inc., doing business as The Home Depot, Robert Bosch Tool Corp. and Freud America Inc., doing business as Diablo and/or Diablo Tools Inc. citing strict product liability, negligence and failure to warn.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 31, 2012, he was using a Diablo masonry blade that he bought from Defendant Home Depot Store in Volusia County, when the product malfunctioned. As a result, the suit states the plaintiff's leg was injured and that he endured pain, suffering and mental anguish, incurred medical expenses and aggravation of a previously existing condition.
The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to properly design the product, failed to warn users of its dangers and defects and failed to perform sufficient safety testing.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants, damages, costs of action and other relief that the court deems just. He is represented by Scott C. Barnes of Ward & Barnes PA in Pensacola.
