Client Blinded in Paintball Gun Injury

April, 2010

This action arose when a 17-year-old boy was visiting the home of his 17-year-old friend. While the parents were home and not supervising the children playing with a paintball gun, the friend accidentally shot our client in the eye and he is now blind in that eye. The claim settled out of court for the full amount of insurance coverage after the insurance company for the friend’s parents commissioned a doctor’s exam. The exam confirmed that our client was blind in the injured eye. The case was handled by Martín Arias.
