BREAKING NEWS

AMC Slip & Fall: $1.8 MIL

Robert went with his wife to his local AMC theatre for a matinee. It was raining earlier and staff directed them to a path delineated by stanchions to enter the theater and purchase tickets. The path was over a slippery terrazzo floor. 


Robert slipped and fell, suffering nerve injury at C5-7, that required a two-level fusion, and a partial rotator cuff tear. 


Defendant claimed Robert that they were not negligent because one mat was enough. Plus, Robert did not suffer significant injuries and all his physical problems were pre-existing.


Robert demanded $ $849,000 before trial. Defendant's final offer before trial was $50,000.


The jury awarded a total of $1.8MIL to Robert but reduced his award by 25% for his comparative negligence to a total of $1,357,500. The jury polled was 9-3.


Hon. Michele Flurer, LA Superior Court.

Lewkovich: Big Insurance going after doctors who failed therapeutic exercise in PI cases

You may not want to read the sworn transcript from a practicing doctor. It’s uncomfortable and embarrassing.


But the Standard of Care for PI cases is changing. Therapeutic exercises are crucial for all PI cases. Period.


Most experts agree that home exercises are merely “useful.” However, research, reason, and guidelines have pushed therapeutic exercise into a key standard of care. Lewkovich explains that failure to do exercise rehab as part of a complaint can be “malpractice”

ACE'S LIT TIPS 🔥

Communication with your patient’s attorney is very important. You have infinitely more contact with your patient than the attorney does with their client and, as such, you are much more in tune with their needs. 


If a patient is telling you about psychological problems or new complaints of pain or even offhand remarks about someone visiting them asking about the accident, these are all things to report to the PI attorney. The sooner I know about new complaints, the sooner we can take steps to get this patient treatment. The sooner I know about potential problems in the case, the sooner I can take steps to remedy those problems. 


Remember that any Plaintiff’s attorney who cares about you will take your calls and respond appropriately to your concerns so that cases resolve happier for all parties involved.
