Need good slip and fall lawyer in Georgia? We obtained a record verdict from a Hampton Inn motel due to leaking water from air conditioning units causing permanent injuries including post concussive syndrome, hearing loss and vision impairment.
We obtained a record verdict in the small south Georgia county of Bulloch County. Our client only had $43,000 in medical bills which included several ear surgeries for ear drainage tubes. The hotel denied responsibility for the injury for 3 years and only offered $100,000 to settle the case a few days before trial.
The jury gave us a verdict of $1.5 million dollars for compensatory damages plus $250,000 for punitive damages to deter the hotel defendant from future gross negligence. Evidence showed that the motel never fixed the continual leaking air conditioning units for 10 years, thus the jury wanted to punish the motel owners.
