$280,000 Product Liability
Our fifty-five year old client was shopping at a big box retail store. She picked up a crystal perfume bottle on display when she suffered a severe laceration of her thumb, which required two surgeries to repair. Our firm filed a products liability lawsuit against the designer and distributor of the perfume bottle, alleging that the perfume bottle was unreasonably dangerous product put into the stream of commerce. After extensive litigation, we were able to secure a $275,000 settlement to compensate her for her medical bills, pain and suffering and disability due to the defective product. The product was taken off the market.
