Premises Liability – Settlement: Six-Figures Policy Limits
Decedent was trimming a tree as a favor for his long time friend. When the ladder she provided for the Decedent gave way, he fell from the height of eight feet, sustaining a fractured skull and a subdural hematoma. The victim passed away from his injuries within days. Defendant's insurance company denied liability, saying it was the Decedent's own fault he fell. We were able to establish that Defendant lied about the facts surrounding the accident, and the case settled for the six-figures policy limits during litigation.
