$60,000 Settlement by Attorneys Jonathan Lang and Joseph Russo
Attorneys Jonathan Lang and Joseph Russo obtained a $60,000 settlement on behalf of a lovely woman who suffered a meniscus tear requiring arthroscopic surgery when she tripped on a raised lip of a sidewalk paver going into work after a lunch break.
Attorney Russo commented that “this case was tricky because every premises liability case has a built in component of comparative fault. Fortunately, our client was well-prepared for her recorded statement and made a fantastic impression on the investigator assigned to take the statement for the insurance carrier. We documented the condition of the tripping hazard before it was repaired and retained one of the most prominent knee surgeons in Boston to provide us with a permanent injury rating.”
Attorney Russo also commented “Attorney Lang, who recently joined the firm, did a great job working on this case and immediately added value to the file throughout the negotiation process. This case was a great example of how two lawyers can work together to maximize the value of a case.”
