In this case, GJEL Accident Attorneys represented an employee who was injured at work when a display he was straightening fell, crushing his fingers. The injury resulted in Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) which permanently disabled the man.
The defendants in the case were the manufacturers of the faulty hanging system, the company responsible for hanging and maintaining the displays, and the employees of that company who actually did the hanging.
GJEL went through extensive efforts to prove that though the displays were strong when properly fastened, they were designed in such a way as to often result in a “false fasten” which made them appear to be secure when they weren’t. GJEL’s attorneys built a full scale copy of the fastening system and conducted and video recorded tests to show the poor design. As a result, GJEL was able to recover a $3.28 million for this client.
