The firm’s client was an 11-month-old orphan who was placed in a day care facility. The facility continued to use a bottle warmer with a defective thermostat that would get so hot it would pop the bottles.

$1.5 Million Auto / Neck & Hip Surgery
At-fault party rear-ended a car and knocked it into the path of the firm’s client’s oncoming vehicle. The firm’s client was a 55-year-old who underwent neck and hip surgery. The firm successfully recovered the $500,000 liability policy and the $1 million umbrella policy.

Defendant claimed its hip implant design had the lowest failure rate of any implant in the country.

The measurements showed the implant was manufactured outside of the manufacturer’s tolerances, which resulted in the failure.
