Horn Law Attorneys brought together 2 separate legal claims to produce a global settlement for a worker injured in a fall.
The worker, a 28 year-old electrician, suffered severe head injuries when he fell from a makeshift scaffolding attached to a forklift. The worker was installing new light fixtures in a warehouse when he fell about 10 feet to the concrete floor below.
Before substantial litigation took place, Horn Law attorneys orchestrated a settlement of 6 million dollars plus medical care coverage for rest of the man’s life. The settlement was concluded after 2 attempts at mediation.
The worker, who lives in the Kansas City area, is currently in residence at QLI in Omaha, Nebraska. QLI is one of the nation’s premier post-hospital centers for brain and spinal cord injury rehabilitation. Speaking for the firm, Lead Attorney Doug Horn said “now that the legal claims have been resolved, our next goal is for our client to return home to Kansas City”.
Horn was also quick to commend the efforts of all the attorneys involved in the case, including the mediator, Bill Sanders, Jr..
