$54,225 for Carpenter Injured in Slip and Fall Accident
On August 16, 2011, Amy Schaeffer successfully tried a jury trial in the Circuit Court for Prince George’s County, Maryland. Our client worked as a carpenter and injured his lower back when he slipped and fell. He had been represented by another law firm for seven years, but was no longer satisfied with the legal representation and poor customer service provided by the other firm, so he contacted ChasenBoscolo. He asked us to take over his case after the prior law firm attended a hearing which resulted in a 15 percent permanent partial disability ruling, equaling only $18,075. Despite the lengthy case history, ChasenBoscolo agreed to take over the case. Through Ms. Schaeffer’s dedication, skill and willingness to correct an injustice, she successfully convinced a jury that his disability totaled 45 percent, and our client was found to be entitled to $54,225. Congratulations on another victory!
