Algonquin Elementary School Slide Incident Resolved for Nearly $1.95 Million

After approximately 5 years of litigation, the case involving a 10 year old girl who fell 18 feet when an inflatable slide that was not secured inside the school gym tipped over has resolved for $1,945,000.00.  The supplier of the slide and the school PTO which was responsible for organizing and supervising the end of the year 5th grade school picnic in May 2013 both contributed to the settlement.  After having arthroscopic surgery in November 2016 to address soft tissue impingement following healing of her left ankle fracture, the girl developed a neuropathic pain condition known as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS).  The punishing pain associated with CRPS is often treated by use of a neurostimulator implanted into the patient’s body. Such a device usually will not cure the pain entirely but merely lessen its severity.
