Our client was shopping at a Dollar General store when the door to a refrigerated cooler came off its hinges striking her head and neck. As a result of the accident, our client suffered an injury to her neck, which required surgery.
Initially, Dollar General refused to compensate her for her injury. After filing suit, Attorney Eric Schade scheduled mediation at which time Dollar General refused to pay our client more than $125,000 for her injury. Ultimately, Attorney Schade was able to secure a settlement of $150,000 prior to trial.
