Los Angeles, CA (Law Firm Newswire) February 12, 2018 – The J&Y Law Firm is pleased to announce that they recently reached a $2 million settlement on behalf of a client who was injured in a slip and fall accident that occurred at a retail outlet.
In May 2013, the client was walking through the aisle of the store in El Monte, CA, when she slipped and fell due to a spilled bottle of juice, seriously injuring her back. She was rushed by ambulance to the hospital where she received conservative treatment. After her injuries persisted, she eventually underwent 2 back surgeries — a discectomy and a spinal fusion. Both procedures failed, however. She was subsequently diagnosed with Failed Back Syndrome, for which she received a spinal cord stimulator.
J&Y fought for the client in a lengthy, drawn out litigation process that involved 4 different mediation attempts. After an intricate and detailed negotiation, the other side eventually agreed to settle the case for $2,000,000. It is worth noting that all property owners in the state of California have a duty to provide visitors with a safe environment. For those that have been injured in a slip/trip and fall accident, J&Y attorneys can help obtain meaningful compensation.
