PLAINFIELD, Illinois (September 20, 2023) – Zayed Law Offices Personal Injury Attorneys is pleased to announce a significant victory in a personal injury case that resulted in a $1.1 million settlement on behalf of a Hispanic woman who suffered injuries due to a slip and fall incident at a well-known grocery store.
On Tuesday, September 10, 2019, the 35-year-old female plaintiff was conducting her routine weekly grocery shopping when she slipped and fell on a clear liquid that had leaked from a freezer in the store's produce section. The severity of her injuries needed immediate medical attention, and she was promptly transported by ambulance to Saint Joseph’s Medical Center in Joliet, Illinois.
The plaintiff's injuries primarily affected her lower back, ultimately leading to the need for spinal fusion surgery. These injuries caused her considerable pain and had a substantial impact on her daily life and overall well-being.
Seeking justice, the female plaintiff, through her legal representatives at Zayed Law Offices Personal Injury Attorneys, filed a personal injury lawsuit against the well-known grocery store on July 14, 2021. The lawsuit alleged that the store had acted negligently by allowing the clear liquid to persist on the floor without acting appropriately to warn or protect its customers.
Jeremy D. Lee, an attorney and partner at Zayed Law Offices Personal Injury Attorneys, said, “[Well-Known Grocery Store] was careless and negligent by allowing clear liquid to remain on the floor without any efforts to make their customers aware of the hazard.”
After extensive negotiations and mediation, on July 27, 2023, both parties reached an agreement to settle the case for a sum of $1,100,000. This settlement represents a significant victory for the plaintiff.
Adam J. Zayed, the founder and managing attorney of Zayed Law Offices Personal Injury Attorneys, expressed his satisfaction with the outcome, stating, “This settlement is a great win for our client and will allow her to continue to seek treatment for her ongoing pain and limitations.”
The plaintiff was represented throughout this legal process by Adam J. Zayed and Jeremy D. Lee, both dedicated and experienced personal injury attorneys at Zayed Law Offices Personal Injury Attorneys.
