CASE SYNOPSIS:

Panish Shea & Boyle LLP attorneys Rahul Ravipudi, Deborah Chang and Tom Schultz obtained a $3 million settlement for the family of a young girl who suffered a traumatic brain injury after forcibly striking her head on the concrete.

 

The 10-year-old student was running from the parking lot to the school to retrieve some candy bars for a fundraiser when she was “clothelined” by an undetectable steel cable, catapulted backwards, and landed with great force on her back – causing the back of her head to strike the cement.

 

Defense conceded Plaintiff was not negligent at the time of the incident and admitted liability and causation in this case but disagreed with Plaintiff on the nature and extent of her injuries and damages.
