These may include:
Falling Countertops Crush Customer at "Big Box" Store:
Shirley was 30 years old, weighed 105lbs and was a former gymnast. She was shopping at a Big Box retailer, when five large countertops, weighing more than 350 pounds, fell on her. The countertops had been propped against a wall and were improperly secured. Shirley never touched them. She suffered multiple comminuted (displaced) fractures of her pelvis and her sacrum (lower back). These required multiple surgeries and months of rehabilitation. Shirley had chronic pain and could only walk short distances or sit for short periods. The highest offer from the company's insurance carrier before trial was $220,000, which Shirley declined. Ed Weiner and Lawson Spivey successfully tried the case; the jury awarded Shirley $3,200,000.
Intelligence Officer Suffers Permanent Injuries in Collision:
Don's work in the intelligence community required that he be in top physical shape. At 30 years old, he regularly took a 3-5 mile run before work, biked 5 miles to work, took an intense bike ride with colleagues over lunch, and biked 5 miles home. When a Mercedes SUV, driven by a 17-year-old, T-boned Don's smaller SUV at an intersection, Don suffered a broken back. He tried extensive physical therapy to avoid surgery, but the pain was too great. When surgeons attempted to fuse his fifth and sixth vertebrae, the surgery was unsuccessful. Medical experts testified that Don was left with an 18% disability and would likely experience pain from his injuries for the rest of his life. Don was no longer able to do field work and was transferred to a “desk job”. At trial, two eye witnesses questioned by Ed Weiner provided accounts of how the 17 year-old was speeding and not paying attention to his surroundings. The defendant’s insurance company offered $450,000 prior to the trial. The jury awarded Don $2,040,000.
Pedestrian Pinned to Wall by Elderly Driver:
Connie was on the sidewalk in front of an office supply store in suburban Maryland, when an elderly driver mistakenly put her car in drive instead of reverse. The car jumped the curb and hit Connie, pinning her against the building. Her injuries included multiple fractures in: both her left and right legs, her arm, and her pelvis. The skin on both of her legs was badly damaged. Connie had to undergo multiple surgeries, including skin grafting. She spent extensive time in a rehabilitation facility re-learning how to walk. Lawson Spivey and Ed Weiner successfully negotiated a $1,300,000 settlement on Connie's behalf.
