Product Liability – Defective Fan

We represented a homeowner whose house was damaged as a result of an electrical fire. We alleged the fire was caused by a defective fan purchased in a local retail store, imported from China for sale in the United States. We engaged an expert who testified that the fan was defectively designed and constructed. The retailer’s insurance company also engaged an expert who provided a conflicting opinion. Our expert was persuasive and, after mediation, the firm settled the case in the amount of $105,000. This case was handled by Thomas J. Wynn.
