Attorney Alex Galindo with the law offices of Curd, Galindo & Smith, LLP has filed a product liability lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court Case No.: TC025277 against Western Hoist of San Diego, California and Pacific Lift of Pasadena, California.

The lawsuit contends that on May 20, 2010, Brad Terry was working on a vehicle at his employer's (Cormier Chevrolet) facility. The vehicle was raised on the hoist manufactured and sold by Western Hoist. The hoist failed and the vehicle came crashing down onto Mr. Terry.
