Our wheelchair-bound client was injured upon exiting a van. The handicapped ramp was not level with the ground, so her wheelchair flipped forward and she was thrown to the ground. She fractured her leg and shoulder, but the driver’s insurance company denied liability. After several rounds of negotiation, we obtained a $230,000 settlement.
Our client, a young boy, was negligently shot in the eye with a paintball gun. This injury required multiple surgeries. We settled the case for $235,000.
Our client was hit by an uninsured driver while commuting to work on his bike. He sustained extensive orthopedic injuries that required surgery. Liability was initially denied and our client was offered no settlement. Following litigation, however, our client was awarded a $238,000 settlement.
Our client was a tenant in an apartment complex that failed to remove snow and ice from the property’s stairs and sidewalks. Our client slipped on clear ice, tumbled down the stairs, and suffered serious lower back and hip injuries. The property manager’s insurance company denied liability. We exposed that the apartment complex manager had directed staff members to lie about the accident and won our client an arbitration award of $241,000.
Our client was attending an event hosted at a fairground. The event’s caterers had run an extension cord across a walking path and covered it with a carpet, creating a mound in the carpet. While the lights were down, our elderly client tripped over the mound, fell, and broke her hip. We sued the county in which this event took place, as well as the event organizer, and the catering company caterer. We performed extensive litigation and discovery, and the case settled at mediation for $250,000.
