SR&A Obtains Summary Judgment In Product Liability Case
Jill Taylor successfully argued for summary judgment dismissing all claims against our client in a product liability case in New Jersey Superior Court, Middlesex County. Plaintiff suffered serious crush injuries to his right hand when his gloved hand got caught and pulled into an industrial tape machine. Plaintiff alleged strict liability, breach of express and implied warranties and negligence against our client for the design, manufacture and distribution of the machine. We argued that that our client was not involved in the design, manufacture or distribution of the machine and that our client and a co-defendant were not the same corporate entity. The Court ruled that plaintiff failed to provide a sufficient basis to impose liability against our client for the design, manufacture or distribution of the machine and that our client and co-defendant were not the same corporate entity, granting summary judgment as a matter of law.
