Wyndham v. _____

Facts: A railroad shock absorber exploded, spewing flaming gases over the client, resulting in severe burn injuries. The Beattie Law Firm pursued the case on the theory of product defect, claiming the shock absorber had a defective design. The case was defended on the grounds that they blamed the victim for his own fault in causing the incident.

Settlement: A $1.5 Million settlement was reached after a two week trial in federal court in Omaha.
