This case takes place in Kentucky and involves an injury to a middle-aged man who was hit by the door of his refrigerator after it exploded due to an alleged defect in its design. The plaintiff had recently purchased a new home refrigerator and placed it in his basement. Approximately one week after his purchase, the refrigerator exploded without warning. When the blast occurred, the plaintiff was sitting on the couch in his basement enjoying a football game. The force of the explosion blew the front door from its hinges, propelling it at the plaintiff, and it struck him squarely in the chest and head. Subsequently, he suffered a shattered shoulder, broken clavicle, four cracked ribs and a concussion from the force of the door striking him. A number of expert witnesses specialize in consumer product safety and explosives were sought to opine on this case.
