Multiple Claims of Negligence were Made Against our Client who Slipped and Fell on Ice
John was having dinner one evening with his wife at a restaurant where he had several drinks. After exiting the restaurant, he walked across the parking lot to go to his car when he slipped and fell on the icy parking lot that resulted from the thawing and refreezing of melted snow. John suffered a significant injury to his leg.
The insurance company claimed that John had not been careful in crossing the parking lot because if he had he would have seen the slippery condition and would have avoided it. The insurance company also claimed that John had been drinking and that he had a prior injury which made his claim less valuable.
This case was about to be tried when all parties agreed to mediation. We presented compelling evidence, testimony, and medical records to prove the great value of John's claim. After mediating this case for multiple days, we were able to obtain a significant amount of money for John who was very happy with the outcome.
