Case Conclusion Date: 02.03.2005
Practice Area: Personal Injury
Outcome: $1,200,000.00 Settlement
Description: Plaintiff was a 28 year old woman and mother of two that was shopping in a remnant carpet store when a wooden rack that held rolls of carpet collapsed, burying the plaintiff underneath and causing her death by suffocation. The defendant carpet store was insured for only $500,000 and the insurance company for the building that housed the store had gone into liquidation, which significantly impacted the likelihood of a meaningful recovery for the plaintiffs. The pre-suit investigation conducted by Curcio Law Offices revealed several other related business entities that were liable for the incident and the case settled for the maximum available of the insurance coverage.
