$2,300,000 – Products Liability-Cervical Fracture-Spinal Fusion
Plaintiff, a college student was attending a Spring Festival at his school. An inflatable obstacle course, manufactured by Cutting Edge Creations was assembled for the event. When the plaintiff was diving through the beginning portion of the course, his body folded over on his neck. As a result, he sustained a cervical fracture which required a surgical fusion. Plaintiff later underwent a second surgery for a torn rotator cuff. Hecht Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., retained the most well-respected amusement ride engineer in the country. Hecht Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., was able to prove that the inflatable was defectively designed and did not have the appropriate warnings. The case was settled at mediation by Hecht Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., partners, Jonathan Damashek and Jordan Hecht, for $2,300,000.
