$475,000 SETTLEMENT - Products Liability Case

Our client, a mechanic, was struck by a defective auto lift that dropped 6 inches and caused him to fall.  As a result, he developed chronic pain in his lower back requiring him to be under the care of a pain management specialist.  While the defendant initially asserted that the product was not defective, after depositions were taken of several of the defendant's own employees and its product safety expert, the defendant settled the case at mediation for $475,000, rather than face a jury.
