case results 3.15.24

Our client was injured when she attempted to sit on a defective recliner displayed for sale in a local retail store.  She had a complicated medical history including cervical spine, lumbar spine and knee surgeries in the year prior to the incident.  As a result of her fall, she sustained an injury to her back and left sacroiliac joint and required surgery to address the injury to her left sacroiliac joint.

Despite a defense expert opinion that none of those injuries was related to the fall and a top offer of $150,000 at mediation, Attorney Eric Schade was able to resolve her claim for $210,000 before trial.
