Dustin Fowler is represented by Cavanagh Law Group. His case stems from an incident on June 29, 2017. Fowler, then 22, was playing in his first-ever MLB game as a right fielder for the New York Yankees when he attempted to catch a foul ball along the wall on the right foul line and his knee made contact with an exposed metal electrical box. The serious injury required surgery and brought an abrupt end to the rest of Fowler’s season.
Fowler filed a lawsuit against the team alleging the box was negligently installed in a position where it was undetectable, which posed an unreasonable risk of injury to players. Our case contends that the White Sox knew of the hazard the box posed, but failed to take action to correct the problem, or let players on opposing teams know about it.
