In January 2019, partner Edward A. Steinberg settled a case at private mediation where Leav & Steinberg LLP represented a plaintiff who suffered injuries in an incident that took place in January 2014. The case was handled from the inception by partner Daniela F. Henriques. Learn how our partner was able to get the plaintiff the compensation she deserved.
The plaintiff, who was 67 years old at the time of the accident, was injured when a floor manager—an employee of the defendants’ establishment—slipped and fell on water near the entrance. The plaintiff was present in the upper level of establishment, near the bread display, waiting for a table to become available for about 30 minutes. She was facing the glass display that allows patrons to see the employees making fresh bread. Her back was to the restaurant, and she was there with members of her family, including her son.
