Defective Product Made in Japan Injures Worker

$400,000

Litigation Type - Product Liability

Client Injury - Arm and Wrist Injury

Our client was severely injured while performing routine maintenance on a hydraulic machine at work. The client sustained substantial physical injuries to his arm and wrist and endured significant pain. Cory Whalen commenced a product liability claim against the manufacturers that designed the defective product in Japan and their stateside distributor in Chicago. The product manufacturer denied liability and disputed jurisdiction in U.S. Courts. However, a mediated settlement in the amount of $400,000 was awarded.
