Ellis Injury Law is pleased to announce a $1.5 million settlement negotiated on behalf of our client who was seriously injured after a slip-and-fall accident in a retail store. We congratulate lead attorneys Andrew Ellis and Brandon Corday for bringing this premises liability case to a successful resolution. Now, four years after the incident, our client says she is relieved she can move on with her life and put this difficult chapter behind her.

The facts of the case are these: Plaintiff DOE 1 was shopping at a retail store in Los Angeles, California when she slipped and fell on water leaking from a drink bin. DOE 1 sustained multiple orthopedic injuries in the fall, requiring two neck surgeries and extensive rehabilitation. She also suffered psychological injuries.

DOE 1 filed her lawsuit on February 6, 2018. The case involved multiple rounds of discovery, including double-digit depositions and expert witnesses across multiple disciplines. Like most premises liability matters, the case was able to resolve in mediation, rather than proceeding to a juried trial. Ultimately, the retailer agreed to a fair sum of $1.5 million in damages.
