Case Focus: Uma

Our client became a resident of an assisted living facility because she had several falls at home and her family was concerned for her safety and well-being. She also had begun experiencing episodes of “forgetfulness”.

Several months later Uma was knocked to the ground by another resident who hit her from behind.

At the hospital she was treated for a lip laceration and bruising. A diagnostic test showed a small hemorrhage in her head was found. No surgery was performed. After several days she returned to the facility.

Complaints of dizziness continued, and her family had her transferred to another facility out of state. She remained at the new facility until her death several months later due to unrelated circumstances.

Our position was that Uma was not properly monitored and that the assaulting resident should not have been unsupervised. The case settled at a mediation within one year of the incident. This saved all sides stress, agitation, and money.

Settlement: $200,000.00

Knowledgeable Advocates for Your Premises Liability Case

Property owners are obligated to maintain safe premises. When they fail to inspect their property and patch up or repair defects, they are responsible for subsequent injuries. Their responsibilities extend to the sidewalk, driveway, shingles and even trees on their property.

If you were injured on property owned by a municipality, there are strict deadlines and requirements to file a premises liability lawsuit. Our attorneys are familiar with the necessary prior written notice laws to ensure you are able to pursue your claim against a negligent municipality.

Our lawyers possess sophisticated law knowledge. Our guidance extends beyond typical grocery store accidents. We provide in-depth advice for the following:

  • Playground accidents. Municipal parks and playgrounds can have hazardous elements. Playgrounds must be designed according to code. We can evaluate your situation to establish liability.
  • School accidents. Unfortunately, children can receive injuries at school when teachers don’t properly supervise their students. We will investigate accidents involving teacher negligence.
  • Recreational pools. Poor training, inadequate attention and improper scheduling can lead to dangerous situations. We will evaluate your case to determine liability.

Remember: slip accidents can occur in a wide variety of locations. Owners of these premises are obligated to ensure your safety regardless.
