A California state court judge has awarded $1.19 million to an elderly woman who suffered serious injuries after being thrown from a motorized wheelchair lift, finding the lift was defective and negligently installed.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Gerald Rosenberg, in a decision released February 4, found defendant Greg Joneson, whose company Love Handles installed the lift in plaintiff Laura Rubin’s home, 67 percent responsible for her injuries and Dockmasters, another wheelchair lift installation company that assisted Joneson, 33 percent responsible.

The award is offset by by $342,350 in settlements with other defendants in the case, lowering the actual damages Rubin will collect to $612,672, plus costs to be determined. Her attorneys had sought nearly $14.5 million.
