According to The Herald-Review, an Illinois Police Chief was awarded $2.1 million in damages for his Urbana-Champaign brain injury, which he incurred while setting up for a police training exercise.
The Urbana-Champaign brain injury occurred when the Police Chief fell from the second floor of a building where a stairwell had been previously removed. The Police Chief reported in his Urbana-Champaign brain injury lawsuit that no signs or barricades warning of the staircase removal were present on the day of his accident.
Along with suffering from an Illinois brain injury, the Police Chief also suffered an inner ear injury, fractures to three vertebrae, a torn rotator cuff, a torn bicep, and a broken left clavicle.
The Police Chief has gone through extensive rehabilitation, but as a result of his Urbana-Champaign brain injury and his other injuries, the victim still has back pains, ringing in his ear, and an impairment of taste.
