Janice Beasley was awarded $13 million by a Florida jury for her psychological and physical injuries she suffered from a series of elevator falls that occurred between the 23rd floor and the basement. The incident happened in May of 1999, and the lawsuit was filed in 2002.
The suit was held up for years due to legal complications. According to allegations, the incident occurred because of the elevator malfunctioning and a bad decision by the elevator operator. According to news reports, Beasley says she suffered stress disorder, chronic depression, partial paralysis of her left leg, pseudo seizures, and was in a wheelchair for many years.
