“The plaintiff, a woman in her early 40s was walking in the area and slipped, but did not fall and suffered a minor sprain. The sprain was treated with a cast by an orthopedic surgeon. Within a few months, the orthopedic surgeon saw symptoms consistent with CRPS (complex regional pain syndrome)” said Michael Davis, partner at the Boone and Davis Law firm based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The owner of the property and the cleaning company initially denied the claim alleging that the plaintiff saw the defendant’s employee with a mop in hand, had ignored the caution sign and had insufficient symptoms to support a diagnosis of this crippling disease.
After years of litigation and countless depositions regarding liability and the diagnosis of CRPS, the case was scheduled for trial. Approximately 30 days before the case was to be determined by a jury in West Palm Beach, the defendant agreed to a significant, confidential settlement.
The plaintiff will now be able to offset her diminished earning ability with the interest to be earned on the settlement proceeds and will have the funds necessary to obtain continuing medical care.
“We are thrilled that our client has been able to put this case behind her and receive compensation for her case” said Michael Davis, a Fort Lauderdale injury lawyer.
