That's a story were is the rest of it? What were his injuries? This isn't news it's a rumor unless it's complete. Typical Eagle story, your paper sucks. Do you job or give it up.
You missed in the last 3 weeks a Lineman shocked in Lanesboro and 6 guys laying in the middle of North st Dalton after an early morning accident that snapped off a pole and hundreds of people lost power. Do it right or give it up because you guys suck at your jobs.

Im sure they walked away with a little over a 1.5 million.
In the end he prbably got to keep close to 2 million after medical and lawyer fees

Guess it would depend on his job and what he made for pay and his age and how long he left to work. Also if he needed medical care at home. He also has to pay back the money that his insurance paid out for his medical expenses from his settlement and his attorney fees. Not much left after that. Then if he puts it in the bank and collect a good interest if he can find a bank now that pays good interest he will have to pay taxes on that as earn income.
