Confidential Settlement – Man Sustains Serious Injuries When Tree Falls on Golf Cart at Country Club

In 2017, our client was playing golf at a country club when he was injured. As our client was driving a golf cart through the country club, a large tree limb cracked and fell on the golf cart, pinning and crushing our client in between the tree limb and golf cart. Emergency crews arrived and used equipment to lift the tree off the golf cart. Once the tree limb was removed, our client was able to be extricated from the cart and he was quickly transported to a nearby hospital by emergency medical services.

At the hospital, our client was diagnosed with complex pelvic fractures, a sacral fracture, injury to his lumbar spine, a renal lesion, and other serious injuries. Our client’s injuries were so severe that he was required to undergo extensive rehabilitation and multiple surgical procedures. Despite all the rehabilitation and surgical intervention, our client sustained permanent damage from his injuries. Along with the permanent physical injuries he sustained from this horrible accident, our client also incurred substantial medical costs and economic losses. It was also believed that his injuries would require future medical care and costs associated with that care.

We were retained to assist our client just days after the accident occurred. We filed suit, but through successful negotiations we avoided trial and obtained a large settlement for our client. While our client can never be made completely whole due to the permanent nature of his injuries, the substantial settlement we secured for him will go a long way to account for his pain and suffering.
