The Plaintiff was a customer at the Lowe’s Home and Garden Center in West Melbourne, FL. At the time he was standing in the checkout line, a store employee driving a forklift ran into him from behind. The Plaintiff suffered a variety of orthopedic injuries in particular a low back injury which resulted in severe stenosis of his lumbar spine. He became a candidate for reconstructive surgery which thus far has not become necessary.
The Plaintiff was represented by Attorney Jack Hamilton and his case was resolved amicably at a mediation conference for $600,000.00.
