Fall From Camp Bunk Bed Brain Injury Lawsuit Settlement

Comments (0)

Our Michigan injury attorneys recently settled a lawsuit on behalf of our 14 year old client who suffered serious injuries in a fall out of a bunkbed at a camp in Lake City, Missaukee County, Michigan.  The teenage camper was on at the overnight camp with his church group.

The incident occurred because the camp failed to provide a safety railing on the bunk bed to prevent an accidental fall.  The camper rolled out of the top bunk while sleeping and fell to the floor below. He struck his head on the floor and suffered a traumatic brain injury.

Our client was taken by ambulance to the University of Michigan Motts Children’s Hospital for emergency treatment and was diagnosed with a closed head injury.  He was hospitalized for four days and required in home care for a period of time following the fall. Due to the traumatic brain injury, he suffered cognitive damages which affect him both academically and socially.  He has not fully recovered from those injuries.

Our law office filed a lawsuit on behalf of our client in the Wayne County Circuit Court in Detroit, Michigan. The case was filed against the camp and the church group seeking “pain and suffering” damages sustained by our client due to the negligence of the camp operator.  The suit also sought repayment of medical expenses paid by the health insurance company.

Our legal team gathered the relevant documentation, medical records and photographs.  A settlement was negotiated with the liability insurance company without protracted and lengthy litigation. The amount of the settlement is subject to a confidentiality and non-disclosure agreement. A structure/trust account was established for our minor client.
