Our client worked as a lead operator on a printing machine. As he attempted to shut down the machine to remove a paper jam, our client’s hand became caught in an unguarded nip point on the machine. He suffered agonizing partial amputations of two fingers.
Peter Patton, a senior partner at Galfand Berger, conducted a thorough investigation of this matter. Peter concluded that the manufacturer of the machine designed and built an unsafe machine, which lacked common-sense safety features, like guards between two rotating cylinders. Peter established that our client’s injuries were a direct result of Defendant’s poorly designed and built machine.
Of course, Defendant attempted to deny all liability and instead claimed the injury was the fault of our client and his employer.
In the end, as a result of his skilled advocacy, Peter resolved this matter before trial for $275,000.
