Ricky L. Liss, Esquire represented a 12 year old boy, who was in a baseball batting cage with a defective pitching machine. The pitching machine shot hard, plastic balls too fast and directly at the boy. One of the balls struck the boy in the face and broke his jaw, which had to be wired shut for weeks. Fortunately, the boy made a complete recovery and Liss won substantial compensation for him.
