“Julie” (not a real person) wasn’t just a teacher: in the town where she had taught elementary school for more than 30 years, she was an institution. It seemed like almost everyone under the age of 40 had spent a year in her classroom, at some point. She had won every teaching award in the school district several times over, in addition to several statewide honors. That was all behind her now.
About seven months ago, Julie had walked into a local supermarket and tripped on the curled up end of an all-weather rug that was placed near the entrance. As she fell, she struck her neck on a handrail and suffered a spinal cord injury. She will be in a wheelchair for the foreseeable future. With effort and determination, she has learned how to feed herself again and to brush her teeth, but she is unlikely ever to return to the classroom where she did her life’s work and earned her living.
Further, Julie’s husband had to leave his job at a financial institution to help care for his wife. Even with the community collections that raised more than $38,000 to help her in her time of need, Julie was in trouble. A year ago, she and her husband were comfortably positioned for their golden years, but soon they will face a choice between raiding their retirement funds or losing their home.
Julie’s personal injury attorney knew she had a strong case against the supermarket chain, but also knew that reaching a settlement was likely to take time. Julie needed financial support now. Her attorney told her to call USClaims.
