Complete Defense Verdict for LG Electronics
October 19, 2012 Case Study
Republic Underwriters v. LGE
The firm represented LG Electronics USA, Inc. in this products liability case. The Plaintiff purchased and installed a new window air-conditioning unit manufactured by LG Electronics for their home. Having left the home for the weekend, the Plaintiff returned to find that their home caught on fire and was completely destroyed. Plaintiffs alleged that the fire started in the same location where the unit was installed and that the air conditioner was defective. They sought damages to rebuild the house and replace all of the contents. Plaintiffs sued the Defendant in the small rural Texas town where the Plaintiff was a well-known horse trainer. A Beck Redden team led by Troy Ford tried the case and obtained a complete defense verdict.
