Issues of Fact Allow Strict Liability Case Involving Ladder to Proceed Forward

In the case of Kallok v. Wing Enterprises, Inc., No. 2:21-CV-00805-PLD (W.D. Pa. Sept. 19, 2023 Dodge, M.J.), a federal magistrate judge denied a Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment in a Plaintiff’s strict liability, negligence and breach of warranty action over a collapsed ladder.

The court found that the Plaintiff’s liability expert’s testimony was sufficiently reliable and created genuine issues of material fact as to whether or not the ladder was defective at the time of sale, whether the Defendant’s quality control procedures met the expected standard of care, and as to how the ladder was set up.
