The man lift platform collapsed due to corrosion and deterioration of a critical connection that was necessary to maintain the platform in a level position, and the two men were thrown some 30 feet to the ground. It was alleged that the plaintiff failed to provide a lanyard or other fall protection to his client. The plaintiff suffered acute and permanent injuries to his ankle and lower back.

Verdict of $3.0 Million. Lead Attorney: Timothy J. Cavanagh.

Facts: The client was unexpectedly sprayed in the face by anhydrous ammonia caused by a hose coupler failing to close properly. The incident left the plaintiff completely blind in his right eye and reduced his vision in his left eye to 20/200. During the investigation, the coupler was thrown away. The primary cause of this action was based on spoliation of evidence against the insurance adjuster. According to the Jury Verdict Reporter, this is a record high result for this type of injury.  

Settlement of $1.3 Million. Lead Attorney: Mark E. McNabola.

Facts: A 3-year-old child died when a poorly constructed dining room chair toppled over and broke his neck.
