Paralyzed Injured Worker Awarded $48 Million

A Lake County jury awarded $48 million in damages in the personal injury case of an injured steelworker. The steel workers were rendered a paraplegic (paralyzed from the neck down) after a fall from a ladder at ISG Burns Harbor (now ArcelorMittal) in November 2004.

When an injured person suffers such severe personal injuries as paralysis, no one can ever begrudge the damages in his personal injury cases. $48 million will be needed to provide the home care for him for the rest of his life. And we cannot forget what he has lost–the ability to walk, to dance, to run, and to live a normal life. He will never be able to take care of himself.

Thank goodness the jury saw fit to help this injured workers in this personal injury case. Congratulations to him and his personal injury lawyers.
