Case Summary: Products Liability / Safe Workplace / Medical Malpractice

| ,

A thirty-year-old machine operator at a local linoleum factory was in the process of changing metal rolls, which were used to emboss the decorative pattern on the linoleum. To change these rolls, he was making use of a roll changing, which malfunctioned, causing his hand to be crushed inside the printing press. After several failed surgeries on his hand, the worker became depressed because his hand was in constant pain: he then sought the care of a psychiatrist to treat his depression. The worker subsequently died because the psychiatrist failed to properly monitor the anti-depressant medications. We sued the manufacturer of the roll changing cart and proved that it had been defectively designed. We also sued the psychiatrist for medical malpractice. We obtained a total settlement of nearly one million dollars for the worker’s family.
