Client Injury - Vertical Laceration along Throat
Everyone wants their wedding reception to be memorable and exciting. Opportunities for unique entertainment open up when one hosts their own wedding reception at a private residence. However, one would-be form of entertainment turned dangerous when two men filled a freezer full of explosives and shot it with a rifle. The freezer exploded but the wedding crowd was much too close. The mens' antics caused a severe injury when a young woman, a guest at the reception, was caught in the throat by a piece of flying shrapnel.
The young woman hired Cory Whalen after a painful hospital stay. She underwent countless stitches through three layers of skin and sustained a permanent, five inch-long scar, which runs the length of her neck.
Cory Whalen obtained a $135,000 settlement for this unfortunate young woman.
