Power Line Injury
A 26 year old male painter was kneeling on the roof of a work site when he contacted a 7,200 volt electrical line operated by Exelon , causing 2nd and 3rd degree burns, traumatically-induced pancreatitis, and diabetes. He continued working as a painter for the same employer after recovering from his injuries.
A retired, 71 year old woman was involved in an automobile accident resulting in severe fractures to her upper right arm and left hip. The fractures resulted in surgeries to install an artificial humeral head, and an artificial hip joint. She also developed a severe foot drop condition, causing a subsequent fall and wrist fracture.
A male roofer, 23 years old, came into electrical contact with a 34,000 volt Commonwealth Edison power line, causing 2nd and 3rd degree burns to 46% of his body. He was able to return to work after recovering from his injuries.
A 47 year old father of five was killed in a head on collision. The vehicle that the man was driving when he died was loaned to friends of his by an automobile dealership whose insurance carrier paid the limits of its available coverage to settle the claim. The carrier initially denied coverage, claiming that the automobile was sold rather than loaned.
An unemployed 43 year old woman developed back and leg pain following an automobile collision which caused moderate damage to her vehicle. A dorsal column stimulator, and eventually a morphine pump, were surgically installed in order to treat her pain.
A pregnant, 33 year old woman sustained a shattered pelvis in a head on collision caused in part by an oncoming police officer who stopped his car suddenly. The baby survived following an emergency C-section, and sustained major brain damage. The majority of this settlement was paid by the police officer’s employer. This result was obtained in collaboration with another personal injury law firm.
A 41 year old male railroad worker sustained disk herniations at multiple levels of his cervical spine, resulting in five surgeries. He was injured when operating a defective device while working. This result was obtained in collaboration with another personal injury law firm.
A 52 year old corporate executive fell down 22 stairs of a poorly marked, open staircase within a gas station convenience store. As a result of his fall, he suffered fractures to his skull, right clavicle, and elbow, and a subarachnoid hemorrhage. He was later diagnosed with cognitive deficits due to his brain injury, although he was ultimately able to return to his prior employment. His medical bills totaled approximately $150,000. This result was obtained in collaboration with another personal injury law firm.
A 36 year old passenger in an SUV was injured when the driver of his vehicle crossed railroad tracks from a road running parallel to the tracks, driving in front of a freight train. The train crossing signals were flashing, but the signal lights were not visible given the angle at which the SUV approached the crossing. The passenger sustained traumatic brain injuries. The railroad denied that it was liable, as the SUV driver had crossed in front of several other vehicles which were stopped. This result was obtained in collaboration with another personal injury law firm.
A 53 year old long haul truck driver fell down an open staircase in a gas station convenience store, causing injuries to his back and an aggravation of his prior left ankle condition. As a result, he required two back surgeries and four ankle surgeries including an ankle fusion. This result was obtained in collaboration with another personal injury law firm.
