The Florida injury attorneys at Bernstein & Maryanoff have been representing clients who have been injured in car accidents, trucking accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents and drunk driving accidents for 30 years. The firm also handles cases involving nursing home abuse and neglect, sexual abuse, workers’ compensation and slip and fall accidents. The attorneys at the firm hereby announce that they have successfully negotiated a settlement with regards to a Florida slip and fall lawsuit that was filed on behalf of an injured client.
Specifically, the lawsuit was filed in the Circuit Court of the 17th Judicial Circuit in and for Broward County, Florida. The case was assigned a case number of CACE 06 007060(21) and it concerned an allegation that the plaintiff, an individual female, was injured because of the negligence of the defendant, a local corporation that involved the failure of that defendant to keep and maintain a safe premises for foreseeable visitors. The case sought several different forms of damages that were allegedly incurred by the plaintiff.
According to the documents that were filed in conjunction with the case, the plaintiff was lawfully on the premises of the defendant within the boundaries of Broward County when the incident at issue occurred. As she walked across the defendant’s parking lot, she allegedly slipped and fell on a patch of oil that had gathered on the concrete. The plaintiff was badly injured as a result of this slip and fall accident, suffering severe harm to her back. These injuries required immediate medical intervention as well as ongoing medical oversight and treatment.
The court documents went on to state that: (1) the defendant had a duty to maintain a safe parking lot for invitees; (2) the defendant either knew or should have known about the dangerous condition that was the oil in the parking lot; (3) the defendant failed to take steps to either remove that dangerous condition or to clearly warn foreseeable entrants onto its property of its presence; and (5) this alleged negligence caused the injuries suffered by the plaintiff.
Rather than fully litigate the matter, the parties to the lawsuit were able to come together and negotiate a settlement. The two sides also executed a confidentiality agreement, meaning that the details of this settlement are to be kept private. The case is now considered closed by both sides. “We are happy to have helped another client resolve a painful and stressful situation in a manner that provides her with the recovery of compensation that she both needs and deserves,” said Jack Bernstein, partner at Bernstein & Maryanoff.
