Hialeah Slip and Fall Lawyers at Bernstein & Maryanoff Settle Florida Personal Injury Lawsuit

The Florida Injury Lawyers at Bernstein & Maryanoff, URL http://www.bernsteinandmaryanoff.com, Have Settled a Personal Injury Lawsuit on Behalf of a Client

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - June 07, 2013) - The Florida injury attorneys at Bernstein & Maryanoff have been representing clients who were injured because of the faulty actions of others for 30 years. The firm represents clients who have been injured in car accidents, trucking accidents, drunk driving accidents, slip and fall accidents and in cases involving nursing home abuse, sexual abuse and nursing home neglect. The firm hereby announces that it has successfully negotiated a settlement on behalf of a client who was allegedly injured in a slip and fall accident.

Specifically, the Florida personal injury lawsuit at issue here was filed in the 11th Judicial Circuit in and for Miami-Dade County, Florida. It was sent to the General Jurisdiction Division and it was assigned a case number of 07-22322 CA 06. The case sought damages that would have compensated the plaintiff, an individual female, for losses she suffered because of an injury-causing incident that allegedly occurred on the property of the defendant, a local business.

According to the court documents, the lawsuit was filed after the plaintiff lawfully entered the premises of the defendant which is located in Hialeah, Florida. As the plaintiff was walking through the parking lot, she encountered a patch of broken pavement that she did not see. The plaintiff slipped and fell because of this broken pavement and she suffered a badly broken leg as a result of the fall. She had to undergo extensive medical care because of the fall that included immediate and emergency medical attention as well as ongoing rehabilitation.

The court documents alleged that the defendant: (a) either knew or should have known of the dangerous condition present on its premises; (b) failed to take the appropriate action to either remove that dangerous condition or clearly warn others of its presence; (c) the dangerous condition was what caused the injuries suffered by the plaintiff; and (d) the plaintiff suffered actual damages as a result of the incident in question.

Rather than fully litigate the matter, the Florida injury lawyers at Bernstein & Maryanoff were able to come together with the defendant and the defendant's representatives and successfully negotiate a settlement. As part of this settlement agreement, the two sides executed a confidentiality agreement, which means that the specific terms of the settlement cannot be disclosed to the public. However, in consideration for the payment of an undisclosed sum to the plaintiff, the attorneys at Bernstein & Maryanoff dismissed the lawsuit and the matter is now considered closed.
