Miami, Florida (PRWEB) February 15, 2013
The Florida injury lawyers at Bernstein & Maryanoff handle litigation matters that arise when people are injured because of the negligence and recklessness of individuals and business entities. The firm represents clients who have been injured in car accidents, bicycle accidents, trucking accidents, those who have been sexually abused or mistreated in some manner while living in nursing homes and people who have been injured while on the job in Florida. 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 on behalf of an injured client.
Specifically, this Florida personal injury lawsuit was filed in the Circuit Court of the 11th Judicial Circuit in and for Miami-Dade County, Florida. The case was assigned to the General Jurisdiction Division and it was given a case number of 11-21555 CA 08. This lawsuit was filed because the firm’s client allegedly suffered serious injuries after slipping and falling while lawfully on the property of the defendant in the case, which was a local grocery store.
According to court documents associated with the lawsuit, the plaintiff, an individual female, was lawfully on the premises of the defendant on or about October 30, 2009 for the purpose of grocery shopping. The court documents went on to allege that the floor on the property was wet because of an accumulation of water and that the plaintiff stepped into this water, slipped, fell and suffered severe knee injuries. As a result of this alleged incident, the plaintiff was forced to undergo multiple surgeries on her injured knee.
The court documents alleged that the plaintiff suffered significant and permanent injuries to her knee as a result of this incident and they further alleged that the defendant was negligent in failing to maintain the property in a manner that was safe for those who were expected to enter it lawfully. The lawsuit was seeking damages that would have compensated the plaintiff for several different forms of loss including past and future medical expenses, past and future pain and suffering and several other forms of loss.
Rather than litigate the matter, the two sides were able to come together and successfully negotiate a settlement that provided the plaintiff with compensation for the harm that she had suffered. The terms of this settlement are being kept confidential per the agreement of the parties involved, and the matter is now considered closed.
