Justice has been served once again by the attorneys of Vlasac & Shmaruk, LLC. James W. Sutton, III, Esq., faced a difficult case in regards to a slip and fall case in Pennsylvania. The Plaintiff was renting a home for a long weekend from the Defendant when she slipped and fell on snow and ice that was not removed from the driveway, fracturing her ankle. Initially, Mr. Sutton was able to settle with the management company and cleaning company, who were contractors for the property owner, for $36,250. However, the property owners were unwilling to budge. After a week-long trial in federal court, Mr. Sutton was successful in obtaining a jury verdict in the amount of $325,000.00. Between the verdict of $325,000, the settlement of $36,250 plus pre-judgment interest, the total recovery for the client should be close to $400,000.
