Our client stepped in a pothole on a sidewalk maintained by the City of Atlanta and broke her ankle. The City blamed the water company for the hazardous condition of the sidewalk. The water company accepted no responsibility. Our attorneys took depositions from several city workers, and it became apparent that the City of Atlanta was lying. The judge fined the City and ordered the City to pay all of our client’s legal fees. Our client obtained a settlement of $75,000.00 and did not have to use any of the settlement to pay attorney’s fees.
Every case is different and results depend on their specific circumstances. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.
