Wrongful Death Accident

Ryan, Ryan & Landa attorney Michael Viglione recently finalized settlement of a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family members of a 71 year old man who died due to injuries sustained in a slip and fall on snow and ice on a negligently designed handicapped parking ramp.

Due to the fact that no one witnessed the incident, Viglione was forced to prove the location and mechanism of the fall through post-occurrence witness testimony, medical records detailing the injuries sustained, and the testimony of an expert biomechanical engineer.

Additionally, Viglione enlisted an expert architect to opine as to the deficiencies of the handicapped parking ramp, its violation of various handicap accessibility laws, and how these violations caused the occurrence.

The settlement, which earned the family $975,000.00, was a testament to hard work and what a wonderful man and father the decedent was throughout his life.
