This case involved an eight-month old girl who was seated in a Bumbo baby seat on a table. The child’s mother was feeding her and simultaneously preparing dinner. According to the plaintiffs, the girl suddenly got out of her baby seat and fell to the floor. She sustained a depressed skull fracture as a result of the fall. The plaintiffs’ medical expert testified that the girl sustained a traumatic brain injury as a result of the fall which could lead to a host of problems in the future. The plaintiffs sued Bumbo International Trust and Target Corporation in federal court for strict products liability, negligence, and gross negligence. The plaintiffs sought $1.5 million in actual damages and at least $5 million in exemplary damages. The jury unanimously sided with the defense and returned a full defense verdict. This defense verdict was the selected for inclusion in the list of 2013 Top Texas Defense Verdicts as reported by VerdictSearch. The defendants were represented by Tarush R. Anand and John G. H. Davis. Mr. Anand serves as national counsel for Bumbo International Trust.
