$200,000 Recovery For Cyclist
$200,000 Recovery: Our client was riding his bike to a cafe near his home. He entered the parking lot from the rear entrance, which was not his usual route to the cafe, and his bike struck a large pot hole causing him to fall to the pavement. The client was immediately treated for his injuries at the emergency room. The cafe leased the premises from Synovus Bank who had foreclosed on the property nine months earlier. The cafe was on a month to month lease and was not required to maintain the parking lot or the building which it was leasing. Our client had multiple fractures in his right leg and ankle and required numerous surgeries over the course of twelve months. Additionally, our client will require future surgeries including a possible ankle fusion as well as future therapies, orthotics, medications and various diagnostic scans. Our office sent an offer to the insurance company for the bank. The insurance company declined to settle the case or enter into any reasonable negotiations so our office was forced to file suit. During depositions, our office discovered that the bank was well aware of the numerous pot holes in the parking lot but did not feel it needed to be addressed either through repairs or through signs warning of the conditions. At mediation, the insurance company agreed to settle our client’s claims. Injuries: Four fractures of right leg and ankle requiring multiple surgeries for internal fixation and reconstruction. Damages: Past and future medical expenses, past and future lost wages, past and future pain and suffering. GREG LADNER V. SYNOVUS BANK.
