Defense verdict obtained in Clackamas County wrongful death case

Shareholders Dan Hasson and Chris Parker obtained a defense verdict for their clients, owners/founders of a non-profit animal sanctuary, following trial held in Oregon City, Oregon, in October 2016. The case involved a workplace fatality, for which the plaintiff estate sought damages exceeding $6 million. Dan and Chris successfully proved that Oregon’s workers’ compensation exclusive remedy statutes applied to immunize their clients from liability, and a full defense verdict was entered in their favor.
