  • Food Service Worker Suffers Hand Injury on Defective Dough Roller Machine

    Case Synopsis:

    Galfand Berger products liability attorney Richard Jurewicz handled a case in which our client, a restaurant worker, suffered a crush injury to the fingers on her left hand when they were caught in the in-running pinch point of the feed rollers on a dough roller machine. The dough roller machine was defective and unsafe because it lacked a guard for the feed chute leading to the rollers where our client’s fingers got caught while feeding dough down the chute.

    The dough roller machine was estimated to be more than 50 years old and the original manufactured was acquired by another company.

    Because of the accident, our client suffered crushing injury that included fractures to her ring, long and index fingers, which although did not require any surgery, has had a functional impact on her ability to use her hand normally because of stiffness and post traumatic arthritis.

    Outcome:

    Mr. Jurewicz recovered a confidential six-figure settlement for our client.  For more information on this case, call our law offices at 1-800-222-USWA (8792) or contact Mr. Jurewicz directly at [email protected].
