Jury Sides with Client Over Plaintiff Seeking Hundreds of Thousands in Damages
We represented a national convenience store chain in a civil action in which a customer alleged that she slipped and fell on an unknown liquid near one of the gas pumps. She sued the convenience store chain for past and future medical expenses, as well as past and future pain and suffering. She alleged permanent injuries to her elbow, shoulder and neck. Through pretrial motions we filed and were granted by the court, the plaintiff’s possible damages were reduced by approximately $110,000. Damages sought by the plaintiff at trial totaled over $500,000. We argued that the premises were not unsafe or, alternatively, that the liquid had not been on the ground long enough for anyone to know of it or warn the customer to avoid it. The jury found the convenience store chain was not at fault and awarded no damages.
Received Summary Judgment in Favor of Insurance Company
We represented our client, an insurance provider, who was named in a lawsuit following a boating accident. Several young adults were using the boat during the accident, which resulted in several serious injuries. One of those injured sued several insurance companies seeking a declaration as to the scope and amount of all coverages provided by the named insurers, a declaration as to the scope and amount of any underinsured motorist coverage, and other coverage possibly available. Specifically, the plaintiff sought a declaration concerning the scope and amount of coverage provided under certain homeowners and automobile insurance policies issued by our client. We ultimately received complete summary judgment in favor of our client as the court determined there was no coverage under either policy.
