Tom Neuhengen sustains a massive injury on the job when a 65,000-pound forklift runs over his foot at a trade show in Chicago. An IT rep for the National Guard and a U.S. military veteran living in Cudahy, Wisconsin, Tom’s life would be changed forever by the careless accident.In the first of this three-part series, Tom is in the hospital for his first surgery following the accident. That’s when his mom contacted an attorney with Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard. The firm took on the case, fortunate to get involved so early and get a jump on the investigation against the defense team. Before the legal team even starts digging, they uncover information revealing that the man who operated the forklift — the one that ran over Tom’s foot — wasn’t certified.Just before the trial is set to begin, the defense team offers Tom a $5 million settlement — and his lawyer explains why it’s not worth nearly what it seems. In the next episode of Beating Goliath, the trial begins and the defense goes on the attack.Visit https://www.salvilaw.com/podcast/ for more information on Tom’s case and the show.Characters in this Episode⚖️ Tom Neuhengen, Plaintiff
