Doug Hoffer tried this case to a stunning verdict. A young girl slid down a sliding pond in the playground of a City school. The slide was not installed properly resulting in a gap between the wall of the slide and the base of the slide. Little Ayisha while sliding down caught her ring finger in the gap and the top of it was sliced off.
The City felt that because it was just the tip of the girl’s finger that it was not worth that much but Mr. Hoffer proved to the jury that Ayisha had a monumentally devastating emotional reaction which affected every aspect of her life and self esteem resulting in an outstanding jury verdict for this child.
