$1.3 million Settlement – Traumatic Brain Injury Following Store Accident
Excerpt from Virginia Lawyers Weekly.
Plaintiff was a customer in a retail store that was undergoing renovations. A contractor was performing work above a display case when he accidentally kicked a cardboard sign that was framed with steel while climbing down a step ladder. The construction area was not roped off and there were no signs warning of overhead work. The cardboard sign, which weighed approximately 11 pounds, struck plaintiff in the head.
