Injury Victory in Court!
I represent an older lady who qualifies under the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) to get public transportation rides to and from home. She got hurt getting into the vehicle, because, contrary to their own company rules, the driver did not get out of the vehicle and assist.
This is bad enough.
But then, their insurance company lawyer filed a Motion for Summary Judgment, arguing that this specialty transportation service had no “legal duty” to follow their own safety rules. Despicable.
After research, depositions, discovery, and legal briefs, the Judge (a great, experienced judge, by the way) ruled in our favor today over on the Daley Center. My client will get her jury trial in Court.
It feels good when I am able to help folks who do not stand much of a chance against expensive insurance company lawyers who are up to no good. It makes the job worthwhile. It’s why I am a lawyer.
"Hiring Scott was one of the best moves I have made in my life. Scott is a down to earth person and attorney. Scott is a 5 star first class act who really knows his stuff. The Judge said his presentation was one of if not the best he had ever seen. Take my advice, hire Scott. I’m sure you’ll be 200% satisfied. I was."
