Tribal Court Awards $2.9 Million In Personal Injury Lawsuit
Indian Country Today reports what may be the largest personal injury claim ever in a tribal court has been awarded to a man who lost his leg in a 2006 accident.
In November, 2006, the man and his wife went to the Foxwoods Grand Pequot Hotel to celebrate their 45th wedding anniversary. The husband was unloading the trunk of his car when a runaway car started by a valet, crashed into him. The valet had intended to turn to turn the key to the accessory position in order to lower the windows but turned the car to ‘start’ instead. The car lunged forward, crushing the man against his car, then knocked him to the pavement, pinning him underneath.
The lawsuit claimed the Mashantucket Pequot Gaming Enterprise, owner of the hotel, was liable for not properly training its employees.
