Won summary judgment dismissing catastrophic injury claims against longtime manufacturing client

PJ Hines, Mike Maxwell and Christa Dines won summary judgment dismissing all of the plaintiff’s claims against a longtime manufacturing client of Hodgson Russ.  The case involved a forklift collision at the manufacturing plant, which caused catastrophic injuries to a worker.  Plaintiff sued the plant on a theory that the design and layout of the facility caused or contributed to the accident.  Our team used a comprehensive analysis of illuminance differentials to defeat the theory that “blinding light” from an open door prevented the plaintiff from seeing the forklift coming.
