Orlando Airport Slip and Fall Results in Large Settlement
Author: Attorney Daniel Villalobos
Client Slips and Falls on Chinese Food
Our client, a retired former army general, was exercising reasonable care in the Orlando Airport while he was walking towards his departing gate. On his voyage to the gate, suddenly and without warning he slipped and fell on Chinese food which another flyer had spilled onto the floor but failed to clean up. Anyone who has consumed Chinese food is well aware that soy sauce drenched noodles are goopy and droopy and create very slippery conditions if ever walked on. Unfortunately for our client he suffered such fate. As a result of his slip he fell onto the floor very hard causing serious injuries to his neck, back, and shoulders. He was in a lot of pain however his flight was about to take off so he had no choice other but to get up and catch his flight without reporting the incident to anyone. When he arrived at his destination he was in pain the entire trip until he returned back to Orlando. Once he arrived he called the Orlando Airport Injury Attorneys Dell and Schaefer. Our firm quickly took the case and began the process of zealously representing our client’s interests.
Our Client Undergoes Treatment
Fortunately for our client he had health insurance to cover the majority of his medical bills. Our client attended physical therapy at the direction of a local chiropractor in our client’s hometown of Vero Beach, Florida. After months of physical therapy our client felt relief from pain. It was now up to our firm to get our client a respectable settlement.
Dell & Schaefer Negotiate A Settlement
After our client finished up treatment our firm filed a bodily injury demand against the insurance company for Orlando Airport. Our firm sought monetary compensation for bodily injury, pain and suffering, aggravation of a preexisting condition, loss of consortium, disfigurement, disability, mental anguish, past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and impairment of ability to earn future wages. After filing the claim our firm received a denial letter saying they had no notice of our client’s fall since he failed to report it and the review of their video surveillance showed no fall ever occurred at the date and time of the incident. Our firm then filed a lawsuit and requested a copy of the video surveillance. Immediately after receiving notification of our subpoena for the video, the lawyer for the insurance company called us and offered us $35,000 to resolve the case.
