This case involved negligent security. Our client, a 35-year-old wife and mother of two young children, was abducted from the parking garage at The Forum III and sexually assaulted. The criminals responsible for these vicious acts were apprehended and convicted. After the criminal cases were completed, we pursued claims against The Forum III for negligent security. Through our extensive diligence in obtaining documents pertaining to the property we learned that the building cut back security measures to save costs. Specifically, they fired the guard responsible for patrolling the most dangerous area of this garage and the area where criminals could enter from an adjacent street. Even though there were multiple prior complaints of dangerous activity in this garage, the owners of the building chose to save a few pennies, at the expense of our client’s safety.

The case settled for $2 million before going to trial.
Our client was a real estate agent, and was married with three children. Her case involved a slip and fall at a local department store. The firm’s client sustained an elbow fracture and herniations to her spine as a result of water not being mopped up in a timely fashion after a rainstorm by the department store’s employees.
– RESULT –
The case was aggressively litigated by our attorney, Robert Critton, Jr. and resolved prior to trial for $300,000.00.
