    Personal Injury: Confidential Settlement For BW Client Injured In Joplin Tornado.

    Our client received substantial injuries in a retail store during the Joplin tornado on May 22, 2011. The store locked our client and her family in the store and directed her to an unsafe area. Once the tornado struck, a large TV crashed into our client’s back and she was covered by rubble for approximately forty-five minutes before being rescued. Our client’s injuries were significant. She had blunt pelvic trauma with sacrum fractures and pelvic hematoma. There was a joint disruption at the first sacral segment and a sacral space ala fracture, which is a fracture of the large triangular surface at the base of the sacrum. She had fractures of both the inferior and superior left pubic ramus. She suffered transverse process fractures at the third and fourth lumbar vertebrae and other fractures at the fourth and fifth lumbar vertebrae. BWO worked long and hard on the case. BWO invested money and time in the case and battled continuously for our client’s rights. Every issue was contested by the defendants’ Kansas City attorneys, but BW matched them step for step and secured a confidential settlement for our client. With the money she received, our client was able to pay for her bills and be compensated for her human losses.
