Case Conclusion Date: January 1, 2011
Practice Area: Personal Injury
Outcome: $70,000.00 Settlement
Description: The personal injury lawyers at THE KLENOFSKY LAW FIRM teamed with MEYERKORD & MEYERKORD to conduct a mediation and obtained a $70,000 settlement for a minor child with significant injuries and scarring as the result of a dangerous condition on a business owner's property. A mediation is an opportunity for the injured plaintiff and the defendant to come together with a neutral party/mediator (usually a former judge) in an attempt to settle a case. Mediations are non-binding, unless each party agrees on a settlement in writing. With our legal teams' skill, knowledge, resources, and diligence we were able to negotiate a settlement with the defendant's insurance company and avoid filing a lawsuit, possibly spending several months or years in court. The settlement proceeds will provide our client with an opportunity to have her medical treatment and future surgeries paid for.
