Product Liability Defendant Dismissed in Philadelphia Action by Partner Vincent Iozzi

Vincent Iozzi successfully extricated his Ohio based metal fabrication company client from an action pending in Philadelphia County where the plaintiff contended she was rendered completely disabled following a crush injury to her hand and presented a demand of $7.5 million. The early dismissal, based on a lack of personal jurisdiction over the client which did not do business in Philadelphia or the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, resulted in the savings of thousands of dollars in fees.
