Miami, Florida (PRWEB) June 26, 2013
The Kendall slip and fall lawyers at Bernstein & Maryanoff have been representing clients who have suffered serious injuries as a result of the negligence and/or recklessness of others across Florida for 30 years. The attorneys at the firm hereby announce that they have successfully negotiated a settlement with regards to a Florida personal injury lawsuit that was filed in response to an incident that was allegedly caused by the defendant named in the claim.
Specifically, the lawsuit was filed in the Circuit Court of the 11th Judicial Circuit in and for Miami-Dade County, Florida. The case was sent to the General Jurisdiction Division and it was assigned a case number of 07-26875 CA 20. The named plaintiff was an individual female and the named defendant was a local retail outlet. The lawsuit was filed in pursuit of damages that were meant to compensate the plaintiff for several different forms of loss that she incurred.
According to the court documents, the plaintiff was lawfully on the premises of the defendant within the borders of Miami-Dade County when she unknowingly encountered a pool of liquid that had gathered on the floor. She stepped into the liquid and she slipped and fell. She badly injured her knee and she had to undergo extensive medical treatment that included surgery, rehabilitation and a protocol of medication.
The court documents alleged that as a result of this incident, the plaintiff suffered several different forms of loss that included medical costs, lost income and pain and suffering. The documents further alleged that the defendant either knew or should have known about the dangerous condition that was present on its property and that it failed to either remove that dangerous condition or to clearly warn foreseeable invitees of its presence.
Rather than fully litigate the matter, the Kendall slip and fall lawyers at Bernstein & Maryanoff were able to meet with the defense and to successfully negotiate an out-of-court settlement. The two sides also executed a confidentiality agreement, thereby preventing anyone associated with the case from disclosing the specific terms of the damages paid. The attorneys at Bernstein & Maryanoff then dismissed the lawsuit and the matter is now considered closed.
