$5.25 Million Products Liability Settlement

Ed Walsh & Partner settled, through mediation, Cook County Circuit Court case Doe vs. SuperFlow Corporation 04 L 12210. This products liability and construction negligence case involved a needless fuel explosion and fire resulting in catastrophic third degree burns to their client, a 17 year old boy.

Ed & Partner were able to provide hope and protected financial security for their young client by using their skilled deposition discovery techniques and consultation with electrical engineers, fire-explosion, vocational economist and life care planning experts. Most significantly, through consultation with their internet information technology expert, Ed and the Firm's litigation team were able to uncover more than ten years of the defendant product manufacturers old archived web sites.

Through this creative and innovative electronic discovery, they found critical substantive documents posted on the defendant product manufacturers old web sites. These evidentiary documents were critical to the key product liability issues in the case. During two extensive mediation sessions, the defendants web site documents and the catastrophic injuries suffered by the Firms young client were digitally and effectively presented with the use of Sanction evidentiary exhibit presentation software. Details of this case may be found on the Firms web site. Ed's extensive mediation submission and certain accompanying documents can be viewed by clicking the following link: Mediation Memorandum.
