DULUTH, MN—Stephanie Ball of Fryberger, Buchanan, Smith & Frederick, P.A., has been named one of the 2017 Attorneys of the Year by the publication Minnesota Lawyer after winning a multi-million dollar jury verdict for a quadriplegic woman.
Nine years ago, Paige Anderson was a passenger in a car that collided a school bus, paralyzing her. With Ball representing her, she was awarded $28.6 million in damages, including medical and caregiver expenses. According to an article by Minnesota Lawyer, “It may be one of the largest personal injury verdicts in Minnesota.”
“I am honored,” Ball said about the award, “but the real reward was giving Paige a voice and having her loss recognized.”
