The firm represented a 30-year-old man who was employed by an independent contractor on a gas well drilling project and suffered an amputation of his left arm and shoulder and severe hydrochloric acid burns from a failure of an improperly designed gas well fracking device by an independent gas well driller employing the consultant’s services. This case was resolved prior to trial with a seven-figure settlement.

The firm represented an 11-year-old who incurred serious and permanent quadriplegic spinal cord injuries after diving into a 4-foot, above-ground pool from a homemade platform constructed adjacent to the pool that was a replica of the pool manufacturer’s platform offered as optional equipment and marketed as a “diving platform” for the pool. This case was tried to a jury verdict awarding the client with a seven-figure verdict.

A 40-year-old man and employee of a large multinational company working as a metal punch press operator suffered an above-the-elbow amputation of his dominant arm while operating a punch press. The punch press was not equipped at the time of its original sale to the client’s employer, or any time thereafter, with an available, all-purpose point of operation guard of the press that would have prevented the injury causing the amputation. This case was resolved during trial by the firm with a six-figure settlement.

The firm represented the family of a 22-year-old employee of a multinational company in a wrongful death case. In compliance with his employer’s direction to clean the mold in the press, he incurred wrongful death case because the press lacked, at the original time of its sale, an available and customarily installed safety device that would have prevented employees from performing multiple simultaneous procedures in the press and allowing the press to close while other employees were cleaning it. This case was tried to a jury verdict awarding the client a six-figure verdict.

The firm successfully represented the estate of our client, age 51, in a wrongful death case. It was determined that a petroleum tank truck operator caused a fire and explosion to a petroleum tank truck the client was refilling with gasoline. The fire was caused by a friction spark on the truck, which lacked, at the time of its sale by Tank Truck Co., an inexpensive available safety device that would have prevented this type of event. This case settled prior to trial.
