California Personal Injury Law Firm Wins $21,500,000 for Injured Trip and Fall Victim
Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, Inc. Wins Multimillion-Dollar Settlement for Trip and Fall Victim Injured on San Diego Trolley Tracks
August 26, 2015 – San Diego, CA – Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, Inc. wins a $21,500,000 settlement for a victim injured on the trolley tracks at the 12th and Imperial MTS station in San Diego. The victim tripped on a dangerously exposed portion of the tracks and suffered from a severe neck injury resulting in quadriplegia. At the time of the incident, the trolley tracks were being renovated, and although the defendants were aware of the safety hazard associated with the work site, they did nothing to warn or protect the public from injury.
The victim was injured at 5:54 a.m. on May 23, 2013 at the 12th and Imperial Transit Station in San Diego, California. Prior to the incident, grinding work performed by a subcontractor during the renovation left trolley tracks exposed by two inches, creating a known tripping hazard. “The motto for the construction team displayed on the back of their work vests was ‘Safety First.’ Unfortunately, the safety of the public did not come first. Instead, it was completely disregarded, and now our client is left to face the consequences,” said Ryan Harris, founder of Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, Inc. Although the defendants, including MTS and SANDAG, argued that they were not responsible for the hazardous conditions created by the renovation at the transit station, a $21,500,000 settlement was reached with the victim and his family.
