One of our clients tripped and fell over a carpet placed at the entrance display of a department store in Melville, New York. Our client suffered a right elbow fracture from the fall, leading to medical expenses including pain and suffering.

The insurance company was heavily disputing the liability over the trip and fall accident. After receiving a low initial offer, TonaLaw then initiated litigation and ended up negotiating a settlement of over 4x the initial offer.
