$750,000 – Unsafe Premises

June 2nd, 2017 Results,Uncategorized

An oncology nurse suffered a head injury shopping at a nursery when struck by an improperly secured planter.  She developed a concussion syndrome which became chronic with headaches, balance and visual symptoms.  We had to explain a serious concussion sustained 3 years earlier when her head smashed into a car windshield.  The insurance company attributed all of her problems to the car crash arguing that the planter incident was a mere modest aggravation of her preexisting concussion syndrome.  The defense went so far as to hire a biomechanical expert who opined that the impact could not have caused any permanent injuries.  Soon before the case went to trial, a settlement was reached.
