Our client was a 21-year-old man walking home through a familiar route. As he was walking past a billboard on a windy day, the sign suddenly blew apart and pieces fell down and struck him in the back of his head leaving him unconscious.
This sign was not regularly inspected, maintained and repaired by its owners which eventually led to this serious accident. The lawyers at McLeish Orlando acted for this young man who suffered a complete C5 quadriplegia as a result of the incident.
This young man needed assistance with most activities of daily living and was prevented from his ability to go to college or university or to find competitive employment. The lawyers at McLeish Orlando were able to settle this case for $14,670,000. This award will have a positive impact on this young man’s quality of life.
