A Berkeley County man who was severely injured when a tree limb crashed through the roof of his trailer has reached a nearly $1 million settlement with the owner of the mobile home park where he was living.
Franklin J. Dangerfield had just stepped out of the shower on July 28, 2008, when a large limb fell from a pine tree above his trailer. Rescuers found a critically injured Dangerfield, then 22, trapped beneath the collapsed rafters of his trailer in the Pine Ridge Mobile Home Park, according to a report from The Post and Courier newspaper in Charleston.
Dangerfield was in a coma for nine days and stayed in the hospital for a month after the incident. He also underwent a month of outpatient physical therapy and speech therapy, according to his attorneys, Benjamin W. Akery of The Steinberg Law Firm in Goose Creek and Howard W. Taylor of the Law Offices of J. Van Wyck Taylor in Charleston.
