When Marguerite Healy sat on a folding chair aboard the Queen Mary in Long Beach six years ago, she was the sole caretaker for a quadriplegic husband. The chair collapsed, and Healy was left paralyzed by the resulting injury. Since then, the Laguna Niguel investment counselor has been unable to care for her husband, James Healy, or even earn a living. On Friday, the couple was awarded $2.5 million in damages by an Orange County Superior Court jury, which found that the chair had been defective.
