On February 7, 2018, the South Dakota Supreme Court upheld a $2.3 million verdict obtained by Hoy Law Firm and Morman Law Firm against Menard, Inc.
In Jensen v. Menard, Inc., Ronald Jensen visited a Menard Inc. store in Mitchell, South Dakota, to purchase plywood sheets. An employee transported the plywood on a single-rail cart outside to the back of Ronald's truck. While loading the sheets into the vehicle, a strong gust of wind moved the cart and caused the plywood to tip over. The plywood fell on Ronald, resulting in severe injuries. At trial, the jury returned a verdict in Ronald's favor in the amount of $2.3 million.
Swier Law Firm is proud of its association with both of these law firms and congratulates them on this decision!
