$3.75 Million Settlement Obtained for Girl Injured On Swingset in Arcadia Unified School District

Posted on

Panish Shea & Boyle LLP attorneys Candice Klein, Tom Schultz, Sarah Kim and Rahul Ravipudi obtained a $3,750,000 settlement for a young girl who suffered significant permanent disabilities and deficiencies as a result of injuries she sustained during a fall from swing that had broken from its swing set at school.

On April 25, 2014, six year old Madeline Massey was swinging on a swing located at Hugo Reid Elementary during an Arcadia Unified School District run after-school program. While Madeleine was swinging, the S-hook connecting the swing chain to the top of the swing set disconnected from the chain, causing her to fall and violently strike her head on the ground resulting in fractures to her skull and a traumatic brain injury.

The Plaintiff was also represented in the case by Laura Davidson, Jubin Niamehr, and Bahar Sodaify of Akiva Niamehr, LLP.
