Client Obtains 5 Figure Settlement for Broken Rib Without Suit
This young woman was shopping at a local supermarket when she slipped and fell on a puddle of water in the aisle which was concealed against a light-colored floor surface. She sustained a broken rib and although she reported the injury immediately, the supermarket claimed that they had no knowledge of the puddle and argued that our client should have seen it for herself.
After several months of denying our client reasonable compensation for her injuries, we drafted a lawsuit for filing and requested that the store provide all applicable surveillance and documentation. When faced with the reality of defending a lawsuit against our firm, the insurer for the supermarket agreed to pay a 5 figure settlement which allowed our client to pay all of her medical bills and also be compensated for her pain and suffering.
Our experience and reputation allowed this client to settle her case without the time and emotional commitment of a formal lawsuit.
