BSF ATTORNEYS SECURE $2 MILLION IN SETTLEMENTS & JUDGMENT FOR INJURED RALEIGH BOY
A Wake County Superior Court judge recently approved a settlement for a Raleigh boy, Christopher Estes, who was injured when four teenagers were joyriding, and one of them shot Christopher in the eye with a paintball gun. The $290,000 settlement, which was approved on November 15, 2007, combined with a $215,000 prior settlement, and also a $1,494,610 judgment, along with interest, brings Christopher and his parents' total recovery to over $2,000,000.00. On January 4, 2004, Christopher, who was 12 years old, was riding his bicycle on Tryon Road in Raleigh, North Carolina, when a car containing 4 teenagers approached. One of the teenagers fired three paintballs at Christopher, striking him in the left eye. Christopher now is permanently blind in his left eye as a result. On July 20, 2005, BSF filed a lawsuit against each of the teenagers and their parents. The lawsuit set forth claims of negligence, failure to control the behavior of unemancipated minors, and strict liability.
