Home depot lawsuit verdict
Florida Jury Awards $5 Million in Defective Ladder Case
July 5, 2017
A jury in Florida has awarded a man nearly $5 million in his suit against Home Depot and Tricam Industries over a faulty Husky-brand ladder. The sum includes awards for loss of earnings, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Moises Ore, of Florida’s Broward County, alleged in his suit that one or more of the ladder’s rivets had failed under conditions of normal use, causing the ladder to collapse; that collapse caused Ore to fall and receive numerous injuries. Ore will require lifetime medical care as a result.
Ore won the case on the grounds that the ladder had been manufactured and designed in a defective manner, and that Home Depot was negligent in selling the defective product.
The defendants announced their intention to appeal the verdict.
