Young Mother Becomes Premises Liability Victim; $3.5 Million Recovery
A twenty-eight year-old Chicago mother visited a warehouse store with her infant son. While reaching for a package of diapers from the rear of a floor level pallet, a wood beam fell upon her from the top of the pallet racks. As a result of the incident, she sustained cervical herniations, a non-displaced shoulder fracture, “drop foot” disorder and eyelid tarsus. Treatment for her injuries consisted of multiple hospitalizations and surgeries.
