I recently won a $450,000.00 binding arbitration award for our client, Ms Parker. One morning, Ms Parker was going to drop off her baby at a friend’s apartment before she went to work. It was raining that day, and because there were no rain absorbent mats inside or outside the complex, water accumulated at a staircase. Ms. Parker, with her baby in her arms, slipped on that water, and was unable to stop her fall because the handrail she grabbed was loose and wobbled away from her, causing her to continue her fall with her baby. Ms. Parker held tight to her child, and while she protected her baby from injury, Ms. Parker sustained serious fractures to her ankle requiring surgery. With the help of engineering experts, and our own investigation, we were able to successfully prove that the apartment complex was negligent in the care and maintenance of their property. We look forward to helping all people who are injured when others violate important rules of safety.
Settlement Amount: $450,000
