Slip & Fall – Case Result
Young person suffering blinding injury in slip and fall accident
Thomas Vulkanovich* was an active, happy boy who lost the vision in one eye when he stumbled and fell into a display hanger in a department store.
The Kahler Personal Injury Law Firm helped Thomas advance his claim.
The defendant denied that it was liable for the injury. It also denied that Thomas had suffered any long term financial losses. It argued that since he was a bright boy, he could still earn just as much with vision in one eye as he could with full vision.
The Kahler Personal Injury Law Firm retained a store safety expert, who was able to determine that the display hanger which hurt Thomas was an old, unsafe hanger which should never have been used in the store. The expert helped to establish that the store was liable for Thomas’ injury because it fell below the standard of care which it was expected to meet.
The Kahler Personal Injury Law Firm worked with Thomas, his family and medical and vocational experts to determine the affect of the eye injury on Thomas’ future earning potential.
Using the medical and vocational experts’ opinions as support, Brennan argued that Thomas would suffer a significant loss of earnings because his limited vision would restrict him from pursuing a number of high paying jobs which for which he would otherwise be suited.
The defendant was forced to settle the claim. The Kahler Personal Injury Law Firm helped Thomas recover hundreds of thousands of dollars in personal injury compensation.
