Congratulations to trial attorneys Moses Lebovits (lead) and Parham Nikfarjam on their trial result in the case of King v. Maxi-Matic U.S.A., Inc., tried in the Los Angeles Superior Court. Ms. King suffered second degree burns to her face, chest, arms and breasts when the lid on her Elite Bistro digital pressure cooker violently exploded and spewed boiling liquid. The defendant did not contest that the product was defective for purposes of trial but did contest Ms. King’s damages and the extent of her emotional distress as a result of the burns. The jury returned a verdict of $4,950,000 in favor of Ms. King which far exceeded defendant’s settlement offer. Congratulations to Moses and Parham on this fine result.
