Recently, a woman was walking down a flight of stairs when they suddenly collapsed. This led to her falling two stories and suffering facial abrasions, pulmonary contusions, and other back, neck, head, and right shoulder injuries. She was taken to Community First Medical Center for treatment and diagnosed with a concussion, a bilateral hematoma, contusions to the right lung, and several rib fractures. Additionally, the woman sustained several cervical disc displacements and protrusions.

Due to the severity of her injuries, our client was also taken to Illinois Masonic Hospital for additional care. The woman was in constant, severe pain, and had to undergo several months of physical therapy. The premises liability lawyers with Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. aggressively pursued the best possible result and reached a $215,000 settlement for her numerous injuries, pain, and suffering.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
