$20 Million Jury Verdict for Premises Liability Case

$20 Million Jury Verdict

Our 15-year-old client was walking home from school when a masonry wall separating a construction site from the sidewalk collapsed. He was struck by falling cinderblocks and pinned under the rubble. He suffered multiple comminuted fractures to his left leg and had to undergo 5 surgeries. The ordeal has left him with severe scarring and he will need multiple knee replacements throughout his lifetime. After a hotly contested 2-week trial, our attorneys Raul E. Garcia Jr. and Meranda Reifschneider obtained a $20 million jury verdict against two corporate defendants.
