Our 10-year-old client was walking down the ramp of a discount store when her middle finger got caught on a protruding portion of a tubular handrail, amputating it at its base. The finger was reattached, and the insurance company claimed that our client had a complete recovery from her injury, which in any event was not their fault but was the fault of the child who was improperly using the handrail. The jury in New York County disagreed.
Every case is different and results depend on their specific circumstances. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.
