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 manâ€™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 nationâ€™s premier post-hospital centers for brain and spinal cord injury rehabilitation. Speaking for the firm, Lead Attorney Doug Horn said â€œnow that the legal claims have been resolved, our next goal is for our client to return home to Kansas Cityâ€.
Horn was also quick to commend the efforts of all the attorneys involved in the case, including the mediator, Bill Sanders, Jr..
