Product Liability Verdict

Marcotte v. Kohler. A young child sustained injuries to his hand from a riding lawnmower. The manufacturer failed to have a guard which was standard in the industry in the United States and in Europe. This case was filed in Miami-Dade County, Florida. The Defendant contested liability (fault) for years before a Miami jury decided its fate and awarded the minor child the sum of two million six hundred thousand dollars ($2,600,000)
