Zagoria Law Settles Premises Liability Suit Pre-Trial for $155,000
ATLANTA, GA – November 17, 2016 – Zagoria Law, an Atlanta-based law firm specializing in personal injury cases, today announced a pre-trial settlement in the negligence suit of Sandra Birdwell v. Charles Hetzer and Elizabeth Hetzer in favor of the plaintiff. Zagoria Law was able to secure a $155,000 award for their client, Sandra Birdwell, just days before trial.
Birdwell suffered a fractured tibia and a torn Achilles tendon, as the result of a fall due to a static defect at the defendant’s home in the Reynolds Plantation community in Greensboro, Georgia. Liability was denied by the defendant’s homeowner’s insurance. Subsequently, Zagoria Law on behalf of Birdwell sued the homeowners for negligence and sought an unspecified amount of pain and suffering damages.
“This case should serve as a warning to homeowners,” said Zagoria Law Founder and Principal David Zagoria. “Residential injuries send more than 10 million people to the emergency room each year and homeowners have a responsibility to maintain a safe environment for family members and guests.”
The original complaint about damages was filed in the Superior Court of Greene County, Georgia on March 9, 2015, civil action file number 15-CV-079.
