Case in Point

Worker paralyzed in fall from fire escape when lifeline fails

The plaintiff, who was using a retractable lifeline while installing decking on the steel frame of a building’s second-floor fire escape, suffered a spinal fracture resulting in paraplegia. He alleged that the lifeline’s manufacturer failed to warn that it could fail if struck by a falling object. The jury awarded the plaintiff about $21.13 million. Bacon v. DBI/SALA.
