Caterpillar Inc. Settles Engine Fire Lawsuit for $46 Million

Cunningham Bounds, LLC announced that it has obtained a $46 million settlement for its clients, Bender Shipbuilding and Repair Company Inc. and an international ship operator, in a product liability lawsuit filed against Caterpillar Inc. for an explosion and fire caused by a defective engine onboard the M/V Sherman, a ship that was under construction at the time. In October 2005, Bender Shipbuilding entered into a contract with the ship operator for the construction of a series of vessels, including the M/V Sherman. The contract price for the M/V Sherman was almost $27 million. On May 14, 2008, while the vessel was still under construction, one of its 3516B Caterpillar marine engines threw a rod during routine testing, causing a massive fire that burned the ship to its hull. Everyone who was on the ship at the time of the explosion was safely evacuated. A three week jury trial in the case had been scheduled to start soon.
