Most recently, Attorney Kolpan obtained a $1,300,000 settlement in a minor brain injury case. Here is a summary:

On December 30, 1999, a nine year child was playing on an indoor play structure when he fell thirteen feet to the floor below through an access door to the structure that was left unlocked. The young boy landed on his head and shoulder. While en route to the ER, the young boy lost consciousness and had a seven minute seizure. Upon his admission to the hospital, diagnostic films revealed that the young boy had sustained brain contusions in the right frontal area, diffuse axonal injury and bleeding in the brain from a left parietal subdural hematoma.

After his discharge from the hospital, the young boy underwent extensive neuropsychological testing which showed that he had cognitive deficits in areas of slow processing speed, poor organization; and problems with language, spelling, handwriting, phonics and processing complicated information. He underwent cognitive training and returned to school.

Attorney Kolpan retained nationally renown brain injury experts in the following areas:

  • pediatric neurology
  • cognitive therapy
  • vocational rehabilitation
  • primary and secondary education
  • neuropsychology and
  • medical and vocational economics.

Additionally, Attorney Kolpan retained a well known neuropsychologist and radiologist to conduct additional testing and perform 3-D MRI brain imaging. The neuropsychologist expert raised the specter that the minor child was at increased risk for:

  • seizures
  • depression
  • Alzheimer's Disease; and
  • early onset of dementia.

The 3-D MRI imaging showed that the young boy's brain had areas of atrophied and destroyed brain tissue.

Attorney Kolpan hired Terry Tainter of Seattle, Washington, an award winning videographer, to produce a docudrama settlement DVD which included interviews with experts and the boy's parents; and an animation of the 3-D MRI brain imaging.

The settlement DVD was part of a settlement demand package sent to each of the insurers. Though this claim was not in suit, all of the parties agreed to mediate the matter before Attorney John Fitzgerald. After a full's day's mediation, the parties agreed to settle the case for $1,300,000, which includes a lump sum payment and the present value of a structured settlement annuity.
