Podcast: Convenience Store Robbery Responsible for Largest Compensatory Verdict in Washington State with Eric Fong
By: Elizabeth Kapamas
In this podcast episode with Cases That Made a Difference®, Eric Fong, attorney, and owner of Fong Law joins Donna Jones, President, and Director of Associate and Client Experiences with Advocate Capital, to talk about the largest compensatory verdict won in the state of Washington after a robber of convenient store attacks a young man, and causing traumatic brain injury.
When Fong's plaintiff walked into a Parkland, Washington, convenience store on November 4, 2015, he was unaware there was a robbery in progress. He was not warned by the store clerk about the situation and was asked by the clerk to call 911. The plaintiff followed the robber outside and “confronted” the robber when they got into the plaintiff’s car.
Fong’s client suffered a multifocal Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and subsequent epilepsy from being attacked with a baseball bat by the perpetrator. Fong said, “The physical and emotional fall out from this TBI is nothing short of intense human suffering.”
Listen to how Eric Fong was able to deliver justice to his client and bring awareness to store safety.
