A Dauphin County jury returned a verdict for over $731,000 to a Galfand Berger client in a recent products liability case. The trial, presided over by Judge William Tully, involved a faulty printing press machine which caused significant hand injuries to a worker. Our client’s non-dominant hand became caught in the printing press machine resulting in fractured ring and long fingers. The injured worker needed surgery on his fingers following the accident and missed eleven weeks of work. As a result of the accident, the injured man has ongoing minor loss of range of motion in his two fingers.
Although the defendant alleged that the printing press machine was originally sold with a guard at the nip point where the injury occurred, Galfand Berger was able to produce contradicting evidence resulting in the large six figure jury verdict. Galfand Berger attorney, Richard Jurewicz, represented the injured man who received compensation for all of his economic damages including $20,000 in medical costs and $11,000 in loss of wages. The jury’s award included $700,000 for past and future pain and suffering.
