MSP attorneys Lee Niedrach and Chris Jackson recently obtained a significant 5-figure settlement for the family of a local toddler. Due to negligent oversight, the three-year-old girl’s ring finger was broken in the hinge of a large door at preschool. Thankfully she has fully recovered and has no permanent injuries.
Lee and Chris were able to utilize Freedom of Information Act requests to discover that a state investigation found inadequate supervision and fined the preschool for the incident. Lee and Chris leveraged this information to obtain the highly favorable settlement. After ensuring all of the child’s medical bills were covered, they had the remainder of the settlement money placed in a conservatorship. There it will accrue interest until the child turns 18, at which time the money will become available to help her pay for college and any other expense she has.
