Defense Verdict Obtained for Construction Equipment Manufacturing Client in Product Liability Trial
Our client, a Fortune 100 manufacturer of construction equipment, was sued in the Superior Court of Lake County, Indiana with allegations that one of its products was defective in both design and manufacture. The plaintiff contended that the alleged defects caused him to suffer ruptured cervical discs necessitating 2 surgeries and leaving him partially disabled. Counsel for the plaintiff told the jury that $2 million dollars was “the floor” for any damage award and that they should in fact award a larger sum. After an 8 day trial, the jury returned a unanimous verdict in favor of our client.
