Ontario Court of Appeal Provides Update on the Lawsuit Against World Kitchen and Corning

The Ontario Court of Appeal has upheld a jury verdict in favour of a London, Ontario-area man in the North American lawsuit against the makers of Visions glass cookware, Corning Incorporated and World Kitchen Inc. In rejecting the cookware makers appeal, the three-judge panel ruled that if there had been adequate product warnings, Stilwell's wife would likely not have purchased the Visions glass cookware. On Sept. 11(th), 2000, Lanny Stilwell, a married father of two from Beachville (outside London) was rinsing a Visions glass Dutch Oven, when it suddenly broke into four sharp pieces. Stilwell lost the use of his right hand, after his nerves, tendon and artery were severed, causing permanent damage. A London jury awarded Stilwell $1.15 million in damages on June 12(th), 2013, after finding that the makers of Visions glass cookware, World Kitchen Inc., and Corning Incorporated, were negligent by not including labels warning consumers to stop using their glass cookware products, if banged or dropped.
