Summary judgment for defendant. February, 2013.
The plaintiff alleged that a four-year-old fell out of a chair at a Taco Bell Restaurant and ruptured her spleen due to a design defect in the chair. Litigation Management Counsel prepared a summary judgment motion, based upon products liability/premises liability law, which was granted by the court.
The 4th DCA upheld the trial court's ruling and found that a subcontract agreement between the parties shifted exposure to Progressive and, thus, Progressive was required to indemnify Tampa Bay Trucking and Patco for defense fees and costs.
