A customer injured by a bag of concrete at a St. Charles-area home improvement store reached a $175,000 settlement, according to his attorney.
Julie Siegel of Siegel Injury Law in St. Louis said Leary Ellis was purchasing bags of concrete at a Home Depot. An employee was on a stepstool handing the bags to the plaintiff when he became unstable and dropped a 70-pound bag on Ellis’ arm.
Ellis twisted as the bag struck his arm, injuring his spine, arm and hip. Siegel said the matter was resolved during pre-suit mediation.
