Broken Ankle and Chipped Tooth Nets Sales Manager $120k-plus!
My client, who, for confidentiality reasons, we will call “WR”, was referred to my office by a woman who spoke with me about a case years before but who did not hire me (all of my clients refer me their families and friends, and I appreciate it!).
She broke her ankle and chipped a tooth on a private sidewalk. Most lawyers would tell you: tough case. And it was a tough case. Until I hired an architect and structural engineer to write a report outlining the problems with the sidewalk and the overhang.
Pre-suit, only one of the three Defendants would even return my call. The other two would not acknowledge the claim in any way. That is, until I filed a lawsuit. Once they saw that the cooperative Defendant was settling, and saw that my case was ready to go to trial BEFORE I even filed the case, they knew we were serious.
The funy thing is, about 16 years ago, before I was a lawyer, I broke my leg in the exact same way and got the exact same treatment, and my case settled for $30,000.00.
I was able to get WR more than $120,000.00 for her injuries.
All cases are different and I am certainly not suggesting that I can get anyone anything in particular in their case, but I do guarantee that I will work hard on every case that comes into my office.
Not every case ends as well as WR’s case. But when they do, it really makes this job worth doing.
