Plaintiff was in his 20’s when a defective dough mixer at his place of employment, a large commercial bakery, caused partial amputation of his arm. The dough mixer was manufactured in the 1950s and was still being used. The dough mixer was stopped as Plaintiff was unloading the dough; however, the machine started to cycle unexpectedly and pulled Plaintiff’s entire body into the machine, causing catastrophic injuries.
This was the settlement amount with only one Defendant, the original manufacturer of the dough mixer.
Kelli Burritt was an associate at another law firm when this case was litigated. She performed extensive discovery on the case.
Result: $775,000 with the Defendant Manufacturer of the machine
