$3,000,000 settlement for paralyzed man

John Elliott Leighton was hired to litigate this inadequate security case in Indianapolis, Indiana on behalf of a 25 year-old man left paralyzed when he was shot at an ATM. Leighton filed suit in Indianapolis alleging inadequate security and violation of industry standards.  Through litigation, Leighton demonstrated that the financial institution ignored hazards to its customers and had considered but rejected suggestions to install a drive-through ATM for use at night. He also proved that the area was used for illegal activities and was a threat to users of the ATM.  Leighton obtained a $3,000,000 confidential settlement prior to trial, affording our client financial security for the rest of his life.
