Congratulations to our friends Blake Johnson and his team at Johnson Livingston, PLLC, on their recent award of $4.8 Million on behalf of their clients, who sustained permanent brain damage due to carbon monoxide poisoning.
Blake and his co-counsel filed a complaint in the 3rd District Court of Salt Lake City County, Utah, on May 1, 2015, under Docket No. 150902951. Their clients were a young married couple celebrating their wedding anniversary. The wife was thirty-five (35) weeks pregnant when they checked into a hotel room next to the hotel’s boiler room. Carbon monoxide leaked into the couple’s hotel room, causing the couple to incur carbon monoxide poisoning.
The Plaintiffs received hyperbaric chamber treatment but still sustained permanent brain damage, including “memory and word-finding difficulties, noise intolerance, anxiety, and depression.” Sadly, the effects of carbon monoxide also complicated the birth of the couple’s child.
Blake and his team obtained a $4.8 Million award on behalf of their clients before entering into a final confidential settlement agreement. The January 2021 edition of Trial Magazine spotlighted this case along with a March 11, 2021, Chicago Injury Lawyer Blog.
