Recovered $1.4 Million
A Grundy County woman recovered a $1.4 million settlement after suffering significant back injuries, resulting in L5-S1 radiculopathy and fusion.
- The Case
A Grundy County woman tripped on uneven ground in a parking lot that resulted in back injuries.
- In Depth Look
The defendant, Amergen, claimed that the two inch lift in the ground did not amount to any hazard. The defense attorneys blamed the woman for being unaware of her surroundings. Further Amergen argued that the injuries she sustained were not due to the fall in the parking lot.
The attorneys at Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates produced evidence that demonstrated Amergen had created the defect after prior construction work was performed on the lot. It did not provide a designated pathway from the parking lot to the facility until after the woman’s accident.
After numerous depositions and years of litigation, the matter was resolved and the lead trial team at Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates helped the Grundy County woman recover a $1.4 million settlement that allowed her to pay her past and future medical bills.
