Premises Liability Verdicts
Dailey v. Eagle Army-Navy - $1.2 million verdict for a store customer who was pistol-whipped on the head by a security guard. Our client was only momentarily dazed and walked away. Three months later, he suffered a stroke. The defense used conventional medical evidence to vehemently argue against there being a connection between the blow and the stroke three months later. Freidin, Dobrinsky, Brown & Rosenblum P.A. prevailed with evidence that convinced the jury that the injury was caused by the act of the guard.
Janice Morris v. Wal-Mart Stores East, L. P. Case NO. 09-CA-004964 - Judge Joseph Fuller, Lee County, Florida. Walmart admitted liability but denied that Mrs. Morris suffered a permanent injury.
