On April 12, 2019, L.H., a 5 year old boy, was thrown from the 3rd floor of the Mall of America to the concrete floor below. Among other critical injuries, he suffered irreparable brain damage from the impact of the fall. Briol & Benson, PLLC commenced a lawsuit against the Mall of America. Today, I am pleased to announce, that a confidential settlement has been reached. The press release states:
“ Mall of America and the family of the young boy, who was thrown from a third-floor balcony by a criminal at the Mall in April 2019, are pleased to have reached a confidential settlement of the lawsuit. The boy’s recovery has been nothing short of miraculous and the focus remains on his health and wellbeing, which includes privacy during this time. Mall of America and the family have agreed to work together with a focus on safety, and already are jointly pursuing policy changes to existing trespass limits for violent criminals so as to give greater ability to preclude such persons from their premises. The Mall and the family will ask that any resulting change be named in honor of the young boy.
The young boy and his family were represented by Briol & Benson, PLLC.”
