  • Eggleston v. Wal-Mart

    Practice Area:
    Slip and fall accident
    Outcome:
    Summary judgment
    Description:
    Prior to starting Bucci & Dix and representing plaintiffs in slip and fall and premises liability accidents, I defended Wal-Mart in such cases for 9 years. In Eggleston v. Wal-Mart, the plaintiff was injured when a fellow customer struck her with a motorized cart, causing her to fall. She sustained significant injuries, and claimed over $1 million in past and future medical bills. I successfully contended that that the plaintiff could not succeed as a matter of law. Now that I represent plaintiffs in premises liability cases, I use the experience gained as a defense lawyer to better prepare and prosecute my client's cases.
  • Hodge v. Wal-Mart

    Practice Area:
    Personal injury
    Outcome:
    Summary Judgment
    Description:
    In Hodge, I defend Wal-Mart against a claim from a customer that suffered a broken collarbone from a falling merchandise accident, and claimed that Wal-Mart failed to preserve evidence. The trial court dismissed the case which was affirmed on appeal before the Fourth Circuit. I now represent plaintiffs in premises liability accidents, and use the knowledge gained in defending large corporations to better prosecute my client's cases.
