ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of the case filed by Kenneth Daniel Warner against Lift-All Co. Inc. Warner filed a case against Lift-All after Warner lost his right arm because the sling manufactured by Lift-All broke and severed his arm. The jury ruled for Lift-All, finding that the sling was not defective. But the trial judge granted Warner a new trial, ruling that the jury verdict was against the weight of the evidence. Lift-All appealed to the Supreme Court of Mississippi, which upheld the verdict in its favor.
