Practice Area: Personal injury
Outcome: Final Judgment for Plaintiff 1.52 Million dollars
Description: Engineering Malpractice case where independent contractor performing a burst test of a tube injured an observer (Walter). Corporation, Precision Tube Technology, claimed they were not responsible for the acts of an independent contractor. Precision held liable on apparent agency theory and the inherently dangerous activity exception to principal immunity for acts performed by independent contractor. I fought this case against a large defense firm that appointed 3 lawyers to represent the defendant. This was by far the most rewarding case I have ever worked on. Not because of the size of the judgment but because the result brought justice and a measure of security for Mr. Walter's family.
