Personal Injury Attorneys Freeman & Freeman Obtain Huge Verdict on Case Defense Never Took Seriou

Personal injury attorneys Freeman & Freeman LLP obtain a huge verdict on behalf of a client who slipped and fell. Concerned their client's injuries were not taken seriously, Freeman & Freeman fought hard to obtain a huge settlement for her.

 
PRLog - Feb. 12, 2013 - Personal injury attorneys Freeman & Freeman LLP are pleased to announce that they have obtained another huge verdict on behalf of a client who suffered a slip and fall and injured herself. Freeman & Freeman LLP was able to obtain $500,000 on behalf of their injured client.  In this case, number LC085961 in Van Nuys Superior Court, their client’s slip and fall accident appeared not to be taken seriously by the defendants.  Personal injury attorneys Freeman & Freeman LLP believe a client’s slip and fall is no laughing matter.  The law firm is encouraging consumers to call the firm today to ensure their accident is treated with the seriousness that it deserves.

In court documents, the Plaintiff stated that she was visiting her daughter’s apartment complex when she slipped and fell on an uneven sidewalk directly out front of the defendants’ building.  This raised sidewalk was alleged to have been caused by the defendants’ lack of maintenance on tree roots which had upended parts of the sidewalk.  According to medical records submitted with the case, the Plaintiff suffered a fractured shoulder which may require costly and painful surgery.  Should her condition continue to deteriorate following her accident, doctors indicated in these records that this could potentially entail a long rehabilitation process.

During the case, court documents indicate the defendants and their insurance carriers took the position that they did not previously have notice of the condition and that it was not hazardous to cause anyone danger.  The defendants further contended that the condition was easily visible to the plaintiff and that the plaintiff herself was comparatively negligent for not being aware of her surroundings as she was walking.  

Said attorney Stan Freeman “Slip and fall cases are notoriously difficult to prove, since the burden is on the plaintiff to show that a dangerous condition has existed for an unreasonable amount of time and even then, the plaintiff is often found negligent for not watching where they are walking.”  

The defendants appeared not to take the Plaintiff’s case seriously, only offering $40,000 to settle the case.  They appeared to find Plaintiff’s demand of close to $400,000 somewhat humorous.  When the jury returned a gross verdict in the sum of $500,000, the defendants were not laughing.  

“There are many people that are hurt by the negligence of property owners and they need to know that they do have recourse and can be compensated for their injuries.  Fortunately, the Plaintiff will not only realize compensation for her injuries, but will now be able to get the continued medical care she needs to move on with her life,” said attorney Stan Freeman.

The personal injury attorneys at Freeman & Freeman LLP encourage consumers who have been similarly injured to call the law firm to discuss how they may be able to gain compensation.  (800) 610-9755
