$5M Settlement in Gunshot Case (Workers Compensation or Personal Injury)

Posted by Tony Brock | Dec 10, 2021 | 0 Comments

What should have just been a normal bus ride for this client turned into a nightmare as he was targeted by a disgruntled bus driver. After arguing on the bus, the bus driver and passenger disembarked, and the bus driver shot him in the arm. The internal damage caused by the bullet resulted in compartment syndrome, a potentially life-threatening condition in which increased pressure in the muscle compartment can lead to muscle and nerve damage, as well as problems with blood flow. If left untreated, it can result in muscle death, amputation, and even loss of life.

The attorney had to be able to show the damage caused by the bullet itself, but also the resulting compartment syndrome to communicate the pain and suffering his client experienced due to this injury. This case settled for $5 million.
