Jury Finds David Copperfield Not Financially Responsible For Tourist’s Injuries During Trick.

Whenever a high-profile celebrity is caught up in a lawsuit, the whole world seems to takes notice. Celebrities have very deep pockets, meaning a successful suit against one of them could result in a very substantial payout. What is more, the public is always hungry for private life details on famous people, and lawsuits can provide just that. In this case, legendary illusionist David Copperfield was the target of a personal injury suit initiated after a fan who was invited to participate in his act was seriously injured running through a poorly lit corridor.

In a strange verdict, jurors found that Copperfield was negligent in the way his trick was set up, but that the injuries sustained by the plaintiff were entirely the plaintiff’s fault. As a result, Copperfield has no financial liability. The plaintiff had brought in several other people who had fallen and been injured in Copperfield’s act to testify. The jury took only about two hours to reach their decision.

Over 1,500 local, state and tribal governments in Arizona have recently come together in a lawsuit against opioid manufacturers. The suits claim that the manufacturers and distributors engaged in fraud and negligence, particularly insofar as they have failed to alert patients and physicians to the addictive nature of the drugs. The suit alleges that systematic fraudulent practices by these companies are responsible for the incredible spike in opioid deaths that have occurred over the past several years. The manufacturers and distributors believe a suit is preempted and must be dismissed because their drug passed FDA testing.

However, in this strange case a professional baseball player is in fact suing the Chicago White Sox for an injury he sustained during a game. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, you may be entitled to monetary relief. Act now and contact an expert personal injury attorney here at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates to discuss your potential claim. Call us today at 617-787-3700 or email us at info@gilhoylaw.com for your free and private consultation. Your needs are our top priority!

Dustin Fowler, who in 2017 played outfield for the New York Yankees, was playing at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago. While chasing a foul ball, he hit the top of the wall and injured himself. Fowler claims the White Sox did not adequately pad the wall, and that they have been aware of the deficiency for some time. There was also an exposed electric box that apparently caused injuries to Fowler that he would not have sustained had the box been properly covered. A federal judge recently denied the defendant’s motion to dismiss and ruled that the case can go forward.
