$200,000 Settlement For Premises Liability
$200,000 Settlement: While riding his bike to a neighborhood restaurant to meet friends, out client fell victim to a poorly maintained parking lot which caused him to crash and severely break his ankle. After multiple surgeries, the doctors had to fuse his ankle which will likely cause many future medical issues including arthritis. The property was owned by the bank which had foreclosed on it nine months earlier. The bank had hired a management company to manage and maintain the property while they attempted to sell it. Despite the fact that the management company had visited the property numerous times, nothing was done about the poor condition of the side parking lot which was left with broken asphalt and numerous deep potholes. Our office did a site visit immediately after the client hired us in order to secure photos of the conditions. After an extensive period of litigation, our office was able to secure a $200,000 settlement at mediation just months prior to trial. Injuries: right leg and ankle fracture requiring multiple surgeries with internal fixation and eventual ankle fusion. Damages: Past and future medical care, past and future lost wages, past and future pain and suffering. LADNER v. BANK.
