At 4:30 pm on May 18, 2018, our Charleston brain injury attorneys won a verdict for our client, Brett Baker-Goins, and his family against First Baptist School in Charleston.
Baker-Goins sustained a sports-related concussion while playing basketball for First Baptist. After complaining of cognitive difficulty, headaches, and other symptoms, he received medical treatment for a traumatic brain injury. At trial, we maintained Brett was returned to play before being medically cleared and before completing return-to-play protocol.
After extensive deliberations, the jury returned a $5,872,583.40 verdict for our client, Brett Baker-Goins. This verdict was the largest personal injury verdict in a non-death case and second largest verdict of any kind in South Carolina in 2018.
