Attorney

Brian Lewis

Synopsis

Case involved a worker that was crushed installing a 7 ton counter weight on a conveyor belt system.

Settlement

For Plaintiff in the amount of $1,000,000.

Notes

This accident had a rather complicated set of circumstances and details where the attorney felt that a model would help to explain the sequence of events that lead to this tragic end. The meeting with the attorney and an expert in the conveyor systems field helped to clarify the functions of the failed mechanism. With the facts and factory drawing in hand, an accurate scale model was produced that clarified exactly what happened. This exhibit helped the attorney explain all of the options that contributed to the tragic end.
