Recovery Amount: $500,000
We represented a 42-year-old man that slipped and fell at a store because a dangerous liquid was left on the floor. He struck his head and developed a post traumatic seizure disorder. The condition was later controlled by medication, but he will probably have to take the drug for the rest of his life. The property owner claimed the liquid was spilled immediately before the slip and fall occurred, and therefore, they were not negligent in failing to discover and clean it. The company refused to pay any compensation. We filed a lawsuit in order to be able to conduct our own investigation into the matter. Our investigation revealed that the store had actual knowledge that the dangerous substance was on the floor and the manager of the store chose to leave it there. The case settled during mediation for $500,000.
