$4.75 Million Settlement : Product Liability

A confidential settlement was entered with a manufacturer of a product that caused catastrophic injuries to our client. The case was particularly challenging because the actual product that resulted in our client’s death was misplaced while lifesaving efforts were being performed. The manufacturer claimed without the product, a jury would not hold them accountable. However, through extensive research, we were able to obtain the exact serial number of the product by obtaining the sales receipt of where it was purchased. After obtaining the sales receipt, we were able to show the product was on a production line that made other defective products. The case was settled at mediation for $4,750,000. The case was handled by Managing Partner Andrew Finkelstein and Trial Partner Kenneth Fromson.
