$1,000,000 settlement following trial – slip and fall on wet ramp

John Leighton and Max Panoff negotiated a $1,000,000 settlement for a young man who slipped and fell on a walkway leading up to a hotel.  The man, who regularly went to this facility, walked out of the building on a rainy day. He slipped and fell on the tile covering the ramp.  Initially he appeared to have a knee injury but that healed. Unfortunately he suffered a neck and head injury.  He sustained a herniated disc in his neck which required surgery, and suffered a delayed-onset concussive syndrome which affected his  speech. The case was settled after a mistrial and prior to beginning a new trial.
