Negligence Causes TBI to Minor Child
A three-year-old boy was picked up and thrown to the floor by his teacher at his daycare facility. The minor plaintiff struck his head and was unconscious for several minutes. He sustained a TBI, axonal shearing/brain damage and frontal lobe impairment, post-traumatic stress disorder; impaired emotional functioning; and impaired cognitive functioning resulting in ongoing emotional and cognitive deficits.
The defendant denied that the incident occurred and vigorously contested liability, as well as causation and damages. CLAW trial attorney Tom Economy settled the case for $1,600,000.
