When an employee at a retail store struck the back of our client’s ankles with a stocking cart, she went to the hospital and was treated for what she and the emergency room doctors thought were minor injuries.
Doctors sent her home with medication and said she’d be better in a few days. Over time, her condition worsened and she developed permanent nerve damage in one of her heels that has affected her ability to walk and enjoy life.
After the retail store refused to take responsibility for its employee’s carelessness, Firm Partner Chad Hastings and his team at Lesser, Lesser, Landy & Smith filed a personal injury lawsuit.
Following months of extensive discovery and expert and medical witness depositions, the case was resolved just before trial for $900,000.
