Attorneys: Charles Cooper/Robert Schall
Facts: On July 7, 2007, a 13-year-old boy was a passenger of an uninsured All Terrain Vehicle which was driven by his uncle on an unmarked dirt road in rural Pennsylvania when the ATV was struck by a law student who encroached on the Plaintiff’s right of way due to a known condition involving a boulder that protruded from the road causing the ATV to overturn and eject Plaintiff injuring his leg so badly that he required surgery to repair his fractured femur and multiple surgeries to remove dead skin tissue and graft new skin harvested from his thigh. The Defendant-driver argued that despite the severe injuries sustained, the Plaintiff regained normal use of his leg.
Cooper & Schall, P.C. aggressively fought the case despite the fact that the Plaintiff was able to return to his normal activities, including his favorite – skateboarding, and the Defendant-driver settled the case prior to trial after a lawsuit was filed by Cooper & Schall, P.C.
