We are pleased that we were able to reach an agreement for payment of the entire $1 million policy prior to trial.

The Carlson Law Firm personal injury lawyer, Robert Ranco, helps his client reach a settlement for $1 million for a slip and fall case with a local sporting goods store in Austin.

According to court documents, Ranco’s client was shopping at the sporting goods store when he slipped on a puddle of water that fell from the leaking air conditioning unit high above the floor. It was alleged that the store was aware of the leaking unit 17 days prior to the fall. (Cause No. D-1-GN-13-000720)

According to court documents, the client slipped and fell on his back causing him to need extensive medical treatment. After several months of treatment, the client had to undergo spinal surgery last year, which was successful. (Cause No. D-1-GN-13-000720)

“We are pleased that we were able to reach an agreement for payment of the entire $1 million policy prior to trial,” said Ranco.

Slip and falls can be very serious. According to the National Floor Safety Institute, they are the leading cause of emergency room visits. These incidents can turn into liability cases. Premises liability laws protect shoppers and visitors of public places.

If you or someone you know was injured from falling at a business, contact a personal injury attorney immediately. Settlements and verdicts vary between cases. Results of other cases are not indicators for the success of future cases. The Carlson Law Firm can help determine if you have a case and fight for what you deserve.
