A man who was injured falling from a ladder has reached a $4.25 million settlement more than five years after the accident. Lorenzo Cortez, now 44 years-old, was painting a house in Cumming, Georgia when he fell and injured his spinal cord and face. The fall left him a quadriplegic and he developed diabetes and psychological problems. Mr. Cortez spent about a month at the Shepherd Center for the treatment of his spinal injury, and his workers’ compensation paid for an accessible house and interim care. Under the terms of the settlement, Cortez was awarded a lump sum settlement of more than $500,000 and will receive annual payments of $250,000 for the next 15 years, guaranteed to him or his beneficiaries.
