This case involves a man who suffered injuries while operating a steer loader for a landscaping company. At this time of the incident in question, the Plaintiff was using the loader to move a large pile of mulch to another location on the landscaping company’s property. The loader was a used model that had been purchased from the Defendant, which was a third party equipment rental vendor. When the Plaintiff attempted to exit the loader while the engine was running, a critical safety feature failed, allowing the bucket arms to move down. This caused significant injuries to the Plaintiff’s arms. It is alleged that the switch was not functioning correctly when Plaintiff rented the equipment, and that his injuries could have been avoided if the safety mechanism was functioning properly.
