Plaintiff set up a pipe laying machine secured by a chain. During construction work, the chain broke, whipped back and struck the plaintiff’s leg, breaking it in several places and resulting in several surgeries. We defended our client against claims for negligence and strict products liability. After discovery and the use of expert witness opinion, we determined that the chain was not sold or manufactured by our client’s company and that the plaintiff may have misused the chain in carrying out his work. We filed a motion for summary judgment, and plaintiff elected to dismiss us.
