Settlement: Case settled in favor of client well into the high 6 figures

In this case, the client was walking to the entrance of a gas station, when he fell on a handicap ramp. He received significant injuries to his leg and knee, requiring multiple surgeries. We claimed that the ramp was not up to code. The slope angles on the ramp were too steep, the markings on the ramp were not up to code, etc. There were a number of depositions, and multiple parties were in the case. After much work, the case settled in favor of the client.
