The team at Truslow & Truslow are proud to announce the most recent jury verdict secured by Attorney Neal Truslow this week. On November 16th, an Orangeburg County jury awarded his client $314,000 for her slip-and-fall claim against a negligent property manager.
The client, an elderly female, was severely injured when she slipped and fell in a parking lot operated, controlled, and managed by an out-of-town property manager. The accident was caused by unsafe and poorly lit conditions in the parking lot. The client was seriously injured as a result of these conditions, and when confronted with the issue, the property manager claimed that he was only responsible for collecting rent and was not responsible for the accident, and instead blamed our client for the accident. Because the defendant refused to accept responsibility and refused to resolve the claim in a reasonable manner, the case went to trial.
After a four day trial in front of an Orangeburg County jury, the jury returned a liability and damages verdict in favor of our client based on the liability and damages established. We are proud of Attorney Truslow’s hard work on this case and his passionate defense of our client’s rights. We always seek to get the best possible outcome for each and every client we work with, and are proud to see justice served.
