Due to the collapse, Mr. Yeakey was found to be 100 percent disabled by the Department of Labor & Industries. However, evidence also indicated that Mr. Yeakey returned to light-duty status at work after the collapse.

After hearing evidence, the jury determined that Mr. Yeakly was to be awarded $1.15 million in economic damages and $300,000 in noneconomic damages.
