Bachus & Schanker, LLC Client Obtains $3.5 Million Judgment for Injuries Sustained from a Defective Ladder
Bachus & Schanker, LLC recently obtained a $3.5 million judgment for their client, John R.
John R., who is a residential electrician, suffered substantial injuries to his back when he fell ten feet from the top of a 12 foot tri-pod electrician ladder while he was working on a light fixture at a restaurant. The ladder had been defectively manufactured by Red Top Ladder, Inc.
John has always led an extremely active lifestyle with being an avid jet-skier, hunter and participating in paintball. John also owns mules with his brother and often enjoyed his time with going on mule rides.
His once vigorous lifestyle has diminished as a result of his injuries. John is now limited to some walking and camping for a very short period of time.
John has endured a great deal of pain and numerous surgeries for his injuries. He attended a Rehabilitation Center where he had to learn to walk, bend, get out of chairs and other functions that most people take for granted. The injuries and surgery not only impacted his physical life, but his work life as well, resulting in being terminated from his job due to his condition. John will continue his road to recovery with only being able to work in a capacity rather than full time.
John's doctor stated that he will need more fusion surgeries and has a high risk of developing arthritis near the surgical area on his body. John has been diagnosed as being permanently impaired.
Marc Harden, an attorney at Bachus & Schanker, LLC, stated, "John has had to go through a lot over the past 5 years. I am pleased that the legal system has provided some justice for John's tremendous ordeal."
