Michigan Lawyers Weekly covers Robert Raitt’s Court of Appeals case involving personal injuries from automatic sliding doors at a store

The Michigan Court of Appeals decision Kenkel v. Stanley Works, et al. is covered by Michigan Lawyers Weekly. The court ruled that a shopper who was injured by a store’s automatic sliding doors can recover damages for her personal injuries, but her award is subject to an economic damages cap.

Personal injury attorney Robert M. Raitt, who represented the plaintiff at trial, said he was relieved the court recognized the validity of the personal injury claim, but disappointed with the damage cap. Said Raitt, “It’s ridiculous that how you are injured determines how you can be compensated.”

At trial, the Michigan jury awarded the plaintiff a $1.5 million verdict.
