$3.6 Million Settlement for Jones Act Client Injured in a Slip and Fall onboard a Jack-Up Rig
Zehl & Associates is pleased to announce a $3.6 million settlement on behalf of our client who suffered herniated disks in his neck and low back after a slip and fall onboard a jack-up rig.
At mediation, the company topped out with an offer of just over $1 million.
We refused the offer and walked away from mediation to continue preparing the case for trial.
Just a few weeks later, defense counsel re-engaged in negotiations and the case was able to settle helping the client to be financially independent for the rest of his life.
Attorney’s fees: $1,188,000
Case Expenses: $297,442
