Plaintiff suffered burns while escaping from a fuel-fed fire. She remembered little of the sudden fire or her subsequent treatment and rehabilitation, which resulted in what her medical providers deemed a good recovery. Because plaintiff recalled little of her experience, she was unable to meaningfully assist us in the preparation of her case. And defendant claimed that she shouldn’t be compensated for what she couldn’t even remember happening.
We reconstructed and illustrated plantiff’s medical treatment and rehabilitation, including her various debridements and grafting procedures, and retained specialists to describe certain of her limitations that weren’t apparent to a casual observer. We proved that, though she couldn’t remember the details of her experience, the emotional fallout was real and long lasting. As compensation for her injuries, we obtained from the defendant corporation a confidential settlement of $9.5 million.
