Summary: Plaintiff was working as a production technician at a Ciba Vision factory. Plaintiff was wiping melted plastic residue off of a upper plate on a heat seal press when the machine stopped and the plate, which weighed over 200 pounds and was heated to 450 degrees, suddenly dropped onto her right hand. Her hand remained trapped under the press for several minutes. The high heat burned through her heat-resistant glove causing her to sustain severe burns requiring four reconstructive surgeries and leaving her with a limited use of her right hand. Defense denied its press and latch were defective or dangerous and blamed Plaintiff for negligence.
