Warshafsky Obtains $1.2 Mil for Repairman Injured at Rental Property
Apartment Complex Lawsuit for Negligence Causing Repairman’s Broken Ankle
Apartment buildings and complexes are responsible for maintaining their property and keeping it safe for residents and any visitors. From cracked sidewalks to loose railings, apartment property develops dangerous flaws over time. If managers don’t keep up with the maintenance, people can fall and get seriously hurt.
At one Milwaukee apartment building, a cable repairman arrived to fix a cable box. The box was mounted to the wall over a window well at the back of the building. The repairman had to stand on an iron grate over the window well in order to reach the cable box. Suddenly, the iron grate collapsed beneath him, sending him plunging five feet down into the window well. He landed hard on his left ankle, resulting in a severe bone fracture.
When apartment owners and managers are negligent in the maintenance of their property, they need to be held accountable if any injuries occur as a result. Our personal injury attorneys at Warshafsky Law demand compensation for residents, guests, employees, repairmen, or anyone else who suffers an injury on apartment property. Our Society Changing Judgements force property management to be more responsible and ensure the property is safe. We show them society will not stand by and allow people to get hurt because of the neglect and carelessness of property owners.
Property Manager Sued for Maximum Jury Awards for Work Accident Ankle Fracture
The apartment’s insurance company quickly made the repairman an offer, but he was not satisfied. His broken ankle had already cost him hundreds of dollars in missed work and medical bills, and he anticipated future medical problems as a result of his injury. The insurance company’s offer was clearly insufficient to make up for his injury, suffering, and lost earnings. He wisely turned to the personal injury attorneys at Warshafsky Law to get the compensation he deserved.
Money can’t take back what happened, heal the cable repairman’s broken ankle, or prevent him from developing a limp or other complications. What it can do is take care of his ever-increasing medical bills, make up for the work he missed, and help provide for his family while he cannot work. When someone else’s carelessness is to blame for an injury, the innocent victim should not have to pay the price. Our work accident attorneys ensure the responsible parties are held accountable for their negligence.
We thoroughly investigated the apartment property and found the grate was old. It had been worn down and weakened over time. If the apartment manager had replaced it when it first showed signs of damage, the cable repairman would not have been injured. The apartment’s insurance company denied fault and refused to offer a higher settlement. Big mistake.
INJURED? It IS About The Money.®
Our personal injury lawyers took them before a judge and jury. The jury sympathized with the injured repairman and delivered a verdict for a much higher award than he likely would have gotten in a settlement. The repairman received over $1.2 million for his injuries, covering his current and future medical bills as well as providing for him and his family while he was out of work. The huge award for the cable repairman’s injuries sent a powerful message to property managers and apartment owners everywhere to keep their properties safe.
