Courtney was delivering for a local package delivery company when he tripped at a townhome where the driveway met the sidewalk. The driveway had sunk and left a three-inch lip. C.D. fell, injuring his foot. The injuries included a broken left fibula and injuries to the tendons and ligaments in the ankle resulting in instability in the ankle. After a couple of surgeries to fix tendons and ligaments, C.D. was left with significant ongoing foot pain and wore a brace daily. The case settled shortly before trial for $300,000 after Partner Rich Ruohonen litigated the case.
