$2,300,000.00 – Industrial Accident/Workplace injury Results in partial vision loss
Flynn Law Firm represented a process operator at an industrial facility who was injured when a valve malfunctioned in a large series of pipes that carried a substance called “paste agglomeration,” used in the manufacture of powdered laundry detergent. The paste ejected into the plaintiffs face while he was performing maintenance on the line. The line was improperly designed and maintained by a sub-contractor at the plant, and was not equipped with the proper warning to let operators know when it was open. At the time of his injury, plaintiff was not wearing a face shield or other PPE, creating a significant contributory negligence issue. Jonah Flynn took on one of the largest corporations in the world, with three national law firms acting as defense counsel, in achieving this result.
