KNR Legal Blog
Our client suffered a partial amputation of three fingers on his left hand while operating an unguarded press brake for his employer who was immune from liability under Ohio’s Worker’s Compensation statute. Through investigation and discovery, KNR learned that the employer’s parent company had assumed control over the employer’s access to outside safety consulting services and rejected a proposal to conduct a full safety guarding audit of equipment at the employer’s facility despite prior, similar injuries. KNR obtained a verdict of $896,757.59.
