$17.5 million settlement in furniture tip-over / product liability case

Last year, Leesfield Scolaro pursued a claim against a furniture manufacturer on behalf of a Central Florida family who lost their 2-year old child in a furniture tip-over incident that occurred at their home.  The dresser in question was compliant with all industry standards, and has not been subject to any recall.  After a thorough investigation by the firm’s team of experts, which included mechanical engineers, furniture designers, and safety behavior analysts, the manufacturer settled for $17.5 million and agreed to bring about change in its entire dresser catalog, specifically to warn end-users about the propensity and risks of furniture tipping-over and the increased need to anchor and secure furniture to the wall.
Client Reviews
★★★★★
I have known Ira for several decades and without a doubt he represents the best of the profession- a never ending commitment to his clients and a perpetual desire for learning and sharing his expertise with his colleagues. Richard
★★★★★
I found, and still find, that Ira’s firm will evaluate the case fairly and provide the client with a reasonably expectation of the process involved and will avoid giving false hope where there is none. Also Ira’s firm consistently keeps in constant touch with the client as well as referring attorneys so each knows the progress of a case. Finally I can tell you that if I personally were injured, Ira Leesfield is the first person I would call. Michael Browning
