Our client, a 38 year-old high school guidance counselor, sustained brain injury (TBI) after being struck in the head by a door. The client walked through the left door of a pair of swinging doors while walking downstairs during a fire alarm. To get downstairs, he was required to walk in front of the right door, which was pushed by a student and struck our client in the head. Over several months, he lost his balance, developed the inability to speak properly, and became hypersensitive to noises. He has been disabled since the accident and now receives social security disability. The jury found that the Board of Education was responsible for maintaining a dangerous and defective door and awarded a total of $6 million in compensation.
