Anthony R. Elman of Elman Joseph Law Group, LLC has successfully achieved a $746,000 gross jury verdict on a slip & fall rotator cuff Injury (less 20% for comparative negligence) after a week-long trial involving a slip & fall lawsuit filed on behalf of a 76-year-old lady. The case, Geneva Lewis vs. Pierre’s, was tried in Chicago (Cook County) Illinois.
Elman Joseph Law Group, LLC took the case to trial after there was no settlement offer from the in-house insurance defense law firm of Maisel and Associates of Traveler’s Insurance Co.
The case involved a 76-year-old plaintiff (Geneva Lewis) who, on February 25, 2009, suffered a rotator cuff tear injury that was caused by a fall allegedly because of a wet floor in Pierre’s Bakery (the defendant) in Blue Island, Illinois. The plaintiff had arthroscopic surgery about year and a half after the accident.
