$6,350,000 Jury Verdict – Workplace Injury / Negligent Hiring
This case involved a workplace injury and claims of negligent hiring against a staffing company. Our client was struck by a forklift and suffered a lower extremity injury requiring surgery. The forklift operator, who had been provided by the staffing company, was not qualified to operate the forklift. No real offers to settle were made prior to trial. The staffing company never seemed to appreciate our firm’s commitment and the client’s determination to seeing the case through to trial.
Shiver Hamilton Campbell’s client, an immigrant from Mexico, was very dedicated to his job and his family. The serious injuries he sustained were life-altering and preventable, and Shiver Hamilton Campbell’s trial team was able to prove these facts to a Fulton County jury.
