Partial Summary Judgment and Evidentiary Motion lead to settlement for client
Our client, a national convenience store chain, was involved in litigation due to a slip and fall. The plaintiff alleged soft tissue injuries and more serious injuries that resulted in back surgeries as a result, and the amount sought by the plaintiff was very high. However, the treating physician was unable to substantiate the cause of the injury, and the plaintiff’s legal team failed to comply with deadlines with respect to expert witnesses. We were able to obtain partial summary judgment and an evidentiary motion to exclude portions of testimony by the plaintiff’s physician. As a result, we settled the case for a satisfactory amount for our client.
