After a lengthy and hard-fought process, Mr. Wright was able to secure a lump-sum settlement for our client who was severely injured in a slip and fall accident. Our client suffered orthopedic and nervous system injuries as a result of the fall which was brought about by a dangerous condition of a commercial property. The insurance company took the position that our client should have avoided the dangerous condition and that the injuries existed before the fall.
Even though the firm’s client required surgery after the accident, the insurance company refused to offer any money until the case was scheduled for trial. Even then, the insurance company made an initial offer that was unacceptable to our client. Once the trial date got closer, the insurance company more than doubled their offer and finally paid our client what they deserved.
