Defective Leaking Pipe Results In Large Personal Injury Settlement
Author: Attorney Daniel Villalobos
Our Client Rents A Hotel Room
Our client, a mid-30s man rented a hotel room in Hollywood Florida. He sat down in a chair in the hotel room. As he was sitting there minding his business, suddenly and without warning he felt something touch the top of his head. He looked up and immediately realized water dripped into his eye. The pipe above him had sprung a leak. Not knowing what kind of water was in the pipe (could have been toilet water, clean water, sewage, etc etc), our client immediately checked himself into the hospital to get his eye flushed out. When he was released from the hospital he called the Eye Injury Attorneys Dell and Schaefer. Our firm quickly took the case and began the process of zealously representing our client’s interests.
Client Visits The Eye Doctor
After discharge from the hospital, our client sought medical care from a local optometrist as well as an ophthalmologist. Fortunately the water was not toilet water or sewage and the client did not suffer any long term injury other than inflammation.
Dell and Schaefer Negotiate A Settlement
After our client received the good news from his eye doctors, our firm filed a bodily injury demand against the insurance company for the hotel. Our firm sought monetary damages for bodily injury, pain and suffering, medical bills, mental anguish, and lost wages. After a lengthy negotiation, our firm was able to secure a high five figure settlement for our client. The terms of the settlement are confidential, however, we can inform you that our client was extremely satisfied with the settlement amount. He had called several attorneys before finally being referred to our firm by a friend. All the other law firms declined his case. He was happy he finally ended up with the aggressive attorneys at Dell and Schaefer.
