The attorneys at the firm handle lawsuits that involve all types of traffic accidents, sexual abuse claims, nursing home abuse and neglect cases and legal matters that arise based on the theory of premises liability. The attorneys at the firm have successfully settled a Florida personal injury lawsuit filed on behalf of an injured client who was allegedly injured on the property of the defendant. Terms of the settlement are being kept confidential.
Specifically, this Florida personal injury lawsuit was filed against a defendant high school located in North Miami Beach. The case was filed in the Judicial Court of the 17th Judicial Circuit in and for Broward County, Florida. The case was assigned to the General Jurisdiction Division and it was given a case number of CACE 09-40792 (13). The lawsuit sought damages allegedly incurred in a slip-and-fall incident.
According to the court documents, this legal claim arose after the defendant was allegedly on the premises of the defendant high school legally. While he was lawfully on the premises, he slipped and fell as he was walking through the building on a wet floor. The court documents stated that the floor was wet because of a leaky roof.
Those court documents went on to allege that the plaintiff suffered severe injuries to his ankle as a result of this fall and that he underwent surgery as a result of this harm. The lawsuit was filed alleging that the defendant high school failed to properly maintain a safe premises and that the defendant did not take sufficient steps to remove the dangerous condition that was the leaky floor nor did it properly warn other parties of this dangerous condition.
The court documents stated that the plaintiff was seeking to recover damages that would compensate him for his medical costs, for his lost income and for his pain and suffering along with several other forms of loss that he had incurred as a result of this incident. However, rather than fully litigate the matter, the parties were able to successfully negotiate an out-of-court settlement. Per an agreement between the parties, the specific terms of this settlement are being kept confidential.
