PROVIDENCE, R.I., April 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A Brian Cunha client, age 55, ordered a new hot tub that was delivered to his home in North Kingston Rhode Island on March 23, 2010. On the date of delivery, the delivery service truck driver asked the homeowner if he would assist him in unloading the hot tub from the delivery truck. The Plaintiff obliged. The truck driver instructed the Plaintiff to balance the end of the tub as he lowered the tub on the lift gate. However, without warning, the driver unexpectedly lowered the lift gate, causing the tub to shift. The entire weight of the hot tub shifted onto the Plaintiff's arms. As a result, the Plaintiff suffered bi-lateral tearing of the muscles on both biceps, thus requiring surgery.
The Plaintiff retained the services of Brian Cunha & Associates, who filed suit in the Federal District Court in Rhode Island. The Defendant defended the case by stating that the Plaintiff was a willing participant and assumed the risk of injury. Brian Cunha was able to convince the attorney representing the Defendant that there was liability. The case settled the day before a settlement conference that had been scheduled by the court in the Rhode Island Federal Court, just prior to trial.
