$3,000,000 settlement – Paraplegia Resulting from ATM Shooting (Indiana)

ATMs are considered crime magnets by those in the security and banking fields. There’s a good reason: that’s where criminals go to steal cash.

John Elliott Leighton litigated this inadequate security case in Indianapolis, Indiana on behalf of a 25-year-old man left paralyzed when he was shot at an ATM. Through litigation, Leighton demonstrated that the financial institution ignored hazards to its customers and had considered but rejected suggestions to install a drive-thru ATM for use at night.  Leighton obtained a $3,000,000 settlement prior to trial, affording our client financial security for the rest of his life. (J.G. v. Financial Institution).
