Personal Injury Settlement

Wes Eddington Settles Complex Product Liability Claim

Wes Eddington recently settled a complex product liability claim against 3 Defendants for a confidential amount. The case involved a rechargeable battery that exploded while being used in a flashlight, which his client had put in his mouth seconds before the explosion so he could use both of his hands to grab something out of his toolbox. His client was heavily sedated in the ICU Burn Unit for 4 days while recovering from severe electrical burn injuries to his lips, mouth, tongue, and upper throat.

Confidential Settlement in Aviation Wrongful Death and Survival Case

Rick Eddington represented a flight nurse who died and the sole survivor of a nighttime snowstorm aviation accident near Rawlings, Wyoming. Rick represented the wife and one-year old daughter of the flight nurse who died in the crash. The crash involved an air ambulance aircraft which crashed when trying to land at the airport. The Defendant disputed liability and claimed the crash was due to unforeseen icing (an act of God), which they believed made them not negligent. After the first week of a two-week trial, the Defendant paid a confidential amount of money to settle the wrongful death claim and the survivor’s claim for a confidential amount of money.
