Litigation Type - Slip, Trip and Fall
Client Injury - Spinal injuries; paraplegia
Our client, a 21 year old man was hanging out with friends on a deck. As he leaned back against the deck railing, the railing gave way and he fell off the deck, 20 feet to the ground. As a result of his fall, our client received serious spinal injuries and is a paraplegic.
Jim Carey and his team settled his claim at mediation for a substantial amount from the homeowners’ policy less than a year after his injury.
Our client, an inspirational young man, was featured in an Eyewitness News story about new technology that helped him to walk again after this life-changing injury. Technology that is so new that it’s not often paid by insurance companies, so the settlement obtained by Carey assisted our client in moving on with his life.
