Pembroke Pines Accident Attorneys settle slip and fall for $27,500
Our client, a college student who lived in California, was visiting a friend who resided in Pembroke Pines, Florida. Our client was assisting his friend in the preparation of a kosher dinner. As he was walking across the kitchen floor, our client slipped and fell on a wet floor. Unfortunately, our client was carrying a carving knife when he fell, which ended up piercing the skin on his hand. The owner of the property, who was also helping to prepare the dinner, had leaked water on the floor as he was washing vegetables in the kitchen sink. He was well aware that the water had fallen on the floor only minutes earlier, yet the owner took no steps to neither clean up the water nor warn anyone in the house of the dangerous condition.
Our Client Was Rushed To the Hospital
Completely unaware if the cut on his hand was serious or not, our client was rushed to Memorial Hospital in Hollywood, Florida. The treating physician diagnosed our client with a laceration to his left hand. The doctored performed sutures on the wound in order to stop the bleeding and expedite healing. Fortunately, the doctor said that the laceration was not serious, there was no permanent damage to the nerves and muscles and that all he would have is a small scar after the wound healed.
Dell and Schaefer Negotiate a Settlement
Immediately after the fall, our firm retrieved the medical records and filed a bodily injury claim with the homeowner’s insurance policy for the owner of the house. Our firm sought monetary damages for bodily injury, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, disability, mental anguish, past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and impairment of ability to earn future wages. After a lengthy negotiation, the case settled for $27,500.00. Our client was absolutely thrilled with the settlement.
