$525,000 Workplace Accident

September 29th, 2011 Results,Uncategorized

A factory worker was burned when the textile machine he was using malfunctioned. We sued the manufacturer claiming that the machine was improperly designed, creating a foreseeable risk of serious injury. The defendant argued that our client caused his own injury by operating the machine in an unsafe manner but we overcame this defense through our investigation and extensive pre-trial proceedings. The case settled before trial at mediation.
