Client Slips and Falls In A Supermarket
Our client, a middle aged environmentally friendly man, was shopping in a major supermarket chain store where he went to buy carrots for a smoothie. Suddenly and without warning he slipped and fell on coca cola that another customer had leaked onto the floor in front of the produce isle. Dazed and confused he laid on the ground wondering what had just hit him. After realizing that a meteor from outer space had not hit him and he simply fell to the ground due to a slippery substance he got up and began to regain his composure. Some nearby employees came to his aid and helped him up. He simply finished purchasing his carrots and left the store. When he got home he was not sure exactly what to do. Someone had once told him not to worry about Plan A because there are 25 other letters in the alphabet. However, when it comes to a slip and fall injury, there is no Plan B. He did the only thing he could do… he called the Miramar Slip and Fall Attorneys Dell and Schaefer. Our firm quickly took the case.
Client Undergoes Surgery
After the fall, our client sought medical care at a local chiropractor. The chiropractic care did very little to help our client with his pain so he sought care from an orthopedic surgeon. The orthopedic surgeon recommended a minimally invasive procedure called a discectomy. The orthopedic surgeon performed the surgery under general anesthesia. Our client immediately felt relief from pain.
Dell and Schaefer Negotiate A Settlement
After the surgery our firm set up a pre-suit mediation with the supermarket chain. Our firm demanded monetary compensation for bodily injury, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and impairment of ability to earn future wages. After a lengthy mediation of three hours, the case settled for $140,000.
