September 2016

In September 2016, Daniel Beyer and William Blasses successfully completed the defense of a steel mill owner and operator that had been sued in the Jackson County Circuit Court by an injured employee who alleged an exception to the Michigan law that limits an employee's remedy to a Workers' Compensation action. Mr. Beyer and Mr. Blasses convinced the trial judge that the facts and law did not support an exception to the applicable Michigan law under circumstances where the company advised the employee of a potential danger. The employee had been burned in an explosion in a furnace slag pit.
