Oregon Court of Appeals Victory in $6 Million Wrongful Death Case

Shareholders Jonathan Henderson, Dan Hasson, and Chris Parker successfully defended an October 2016 Clackamas County trial victory. In that case, Davis Rothwell’s clients, owners/founders of a non-profit wildlife sanctuary, were deemed not liable for a workplace fatality in which the plaintiff estate was seeking damages in excess of $6 million. On appeal, the Court of Appeals affirmed the judgment in favor of the defendants, holding that Dan and Chris had successfully proven that Oregon’s workers compensation excusive remedy statutes applied to defeat the plaintiff estate’s claims.
