Fabric Store Verdict

Frasier v. Oregon Worsted Company, Multnomah County Case No. 17CV27191

Plaintiff was in Defendant’s fabric store.  The store used hangers for fabric that had sharply pointed hooks to keep the fabric on the hangers. She was returning the fabric to a rack when she impaled her hand on an adjacent hanger with a very sharp pointed end.  Plaintiff claimed that Defendant was negligent for failing to warn about the sharp hanger hooks and failing to cover the hooks. She alleged that the injury resulted in the loss of strength, pain, numbness, scarring and emotional trauma. She sought $150,000 for non-economic damages.

Defendant admitted liability and contested only damages.
