There’s data going all the way back to the 1970s showing that people have lost a leg while operating a forklift. Not only do these leg crush injuries keep occurring, but it's the most common injury with a stand-up forklift. It’s a big problem. However, the industry has been able to avoid having to change anything because they've been able to get the standard written to support their design decisions.
On this episode of Trial Lawyer Nation, Michael Cowen and Malorie Peacock discuss how they overcame the odds to win $17.5M in damages for their client in a case against a forklift manufacturer. All this occurred in a case where the defendant said they’d never even pay $100k.
Tune in to this part one, of a two-part series, as Michael and Malorie discuss how they established liability in the case. What was one of the key winning trial strategies? Not getting sucked into disproving every argument the defense made.
Don’t miss out! Michael's book, Big Rig Justice: A Comprehensive Guide to Maximizing Value in Truck Accident Cases is now available!
