Fraser and Dinan Victorious Against Schindler Elevator Corporation in Reno, Nevada

Partners Andrew Fraser and Timothy Dinan obtained a $2 million verdict against Morristown-headquartered Schindler Elevator Corporation in a jury trial in Reno, Nevada.

The jury returned the verdict to a California man, John Deatherage, who suffered permanent spinal damage as a result of an elevator malfunction that occurred in July 2014.  Mr. Deatherage was a passenger on an elevator in the Harvey’s Casino in Stateline, NV when the elevator dropped suddenly and came to a violent stop.

The Laddey Clark & Ryan team, which has earned a national reputation for elevator personal injury cases, has successfully sued Schindler twice previously, obtaining verdicts of $4 million and $8 million.
