On July 13, 2017, Shannon Law Group client James Harrington reached a confidential seven figure settlement, resolving a dispute surrounding serious injuries he sustained on the job as a delivery truck driver.
In January 2013, Mr. Harrington was asked to make a delivery to a construction site in suburban Chicago. In an effort to help the construction workers unload his delivery, Jim pulled a shipping crate toward the back of the delivery truck. When Jim pulled on the wood crate, one of the boards snapped and Jim’s momentum carried him out the back of his truck. His left leg landed on the concrete below under the full weight of his body and he suffered permanent leg and knee injuries.
In the four and a half years since his fall, Jim has undergone five surgeries, over one hundred therapy sessions, and has lived with daily pain and discomfort. The settlement should provide for Jim’s future medical needs.
We are grateful to Mr. Harrington for entrusting us with this highly sensitive matter. We are also grateful to have the constitutional right to a jury trial for our clients in this country, and grateful to jurors who are ready and willing to decide matters of their peers.
