$220,000 Settlement for Defective Valve Mechanism in Irrigation System

A client, who was working on an irrigation system that was under pressure, sustained serious injuries to his eye and arm, when a valve mechanism and safety cap on the irrigation system exploded and struck him in the arm and face. Engineers, hired by the attorneys at Nash & Franciskato, concluded that the safety cap was defective because it lacked safety chains and had inadequate warnings. Shortly after the accident, the manufacturer redesigned the safety cap to include a warning label and restraining chains.
