$600,000 for Zamboni Lung Injuries

The Schmidt Law Firm has a wonderful reputation for handling difficult and challenging personal injury and wrongful death cases. Douglas E. Schmidt, the senior trial lawyer at the Schmidt Law Firm has handled many complicated and difficult product liability and medical malpractice claims.

One of the most challenging of this cases was that in which Douglas E. Schmidt successfully represented some 43 victims of lung injury caused by a defective Zamboni ice-resurfacing machine at the Jay Cook Ice Arena in Coon Rapids, Minnesota. The victims were hockey players, hockey coaches, hockey team cheerleaders and spectators.

These injuries occurred as the combination of three major problems. First, the Zamboni was fueled by propane and its carburetion was improperly adjusted so that it was emitting nitrogen dioxide, a gas that can cause serious damage to lung tissue when inhaled.

Secondly, the personnel of the ice arena was violating State law which required testing of the air quality on the regular basis.

Thirdly, the personnel of the ice arena had shut down the arena’s ventilation system, also in violation of State law.

The City of Coon Rapids refused to offer fair settlements to the victims and Schmidt took five of these cases to a jury trial and won all five, obtaining jury verdicts of approximately $400,000. The remainder of the cases successfully settled after these trials.

The Schmidt Law Firm has over 30 years experience in over 6,000 successful cases involving personal injury and wrongful death.
