Premises liability cases can be some of the most difficult and most common claims we investigate and ,if warranted, prosecute. We strongly discourage these claims where the injury is passing and not permanent, and we are careful not to file suit where it appears the injured person bears most of the blame. In most every case, the suit is defended vigorously. We have handled dozens of these cases over the past 10 years. Here are some of the results we are most proud of in the last three years:

*$1,837,500-Settlement during trial for woman whose foot was fractured when employee ran over her with grocery cart at supermarket. The plaintiff developed reflex sympathetic dystrophy and was disabled from work as an audiologist.

*$900,000-Child fractures ankle when waterpark slide delivers her into a pool of water that is too shallow. The ankle required fusion which limits her mobility and  makes engaging in any active sports impossible in most cases.

*$900,000-Falldown at Discount Store causes multiple leg fractures for a church’s minister.

*$750,000-Business owner slips on icy stairway not cleared by landlord. Plaintiff, a physician, badly injured his master arm and needed multiple operations.

 

 

How to Use Case Builder

Case Builder contains two helpful categories: cases we are working on now and our past results. Case Builder is a novel concept. Our web designer said we should have this information fixed in a web page. We disagreed—thinking that just like our practice is always changing the case builder should be an ever-changing description of where we are right now—not last month or a year ago.
