Steinger, Greene & Feiner Fights For Student Safety Within The Palm Beach County School District

Steinger, Greene & Feiner represents 18-year-old personal injury victim Trinity Harmon in her case against Palm Beach County School District. Harmon and her mother hired Steinger, Greene & Feiner Injury Lawyers to file a negligence claim for injuries sustained during an accident in Harmon’s Junior ROTC class at Seminole Ridge High School.

Three years ago, Harmon’s Junior ROTC instructors told her to and her classmates to roll a 500-pound tractor tire as part of their physical training drills without supervision. While Harmon performed the drill, the massive tire fell on her, knocking her into the concrete. With broken bones in both of her feet, Harmon has had to endure multiple surgeries with more to come.

“It was really frightening, I was honestly petrified,” Harmon said. “I had no clue what was happening. I didn’t know what was gonna happen. I knew it was falling, I just didn’t know where. I was in excruciating pain. I couldn’t feel anything at first. I couldn’t feel my legs.”

“Had the school just done anything to supervise to assist these kids, to tell them what it is that they needed to do to move this tire properly, all this could’ve been prevented,” said Attorney Ian Duncan.

Steinger, Greene & Feiner is seeking the maximum allowed for most cases under Florida personal injury law on behalf of Trinity Harmon.
