$115,000 Settlement – Man Sustains Traumatic Brain Injury When Tree Limb Falls on His HeadPremises Liability
In August 2014, our client sustained severe injuries when he was hurt while cutting down a tree. Our client was at his brother-in-law’s home when a large limb fell off the tree he was cutting from 40 feet above him, landing on our client. The limb struck our client in the head, knocking him unconscious. Emergency medical services were called, and our client was transported to a nearby hospital where he was admitted for treatment.
As a result of this horrific accident, our client sustained a traumatic brain injury, concussion, and a complete tear of his right rotator cuff. To treat his injury, he was required to undergo a surgery to repair the rotator cuff tear. Although our client’s initial injuries healed, the consequences of the accident proved life changing. Due to his concussion, he experienced memory loss and debilitating headaches. The injury to his shoulder also caused him continued pain and restricted his mobility. The lasting effects that our client’s injuries created forced him to retire from his jobs as they were too physically demanding.
Shortly after the traumatic accident occurred, our client contacted us to assist him in his recovery. We were able to completely avoid the need for our client to ever set foot into a courtroom as we were able to obtain a fair settlement for him. The settlement we were able to secure for him will go a long way to account for the toll this accident took on our client’s life and the injuries that he sustained.
