A 75-year-old man slipped on a hidden and dangerous condition outside of a major fast-food franchise and fell on his head and neck, sustaining traumatic brain and spine damage that caused his death. The man’s family retained Mr. Streed to pursue the nationally known restaurant chain for their negligence. The restaurant denied any responsibility for the incident.
Through helpful eyewitnesses and expert witness testimony concerning proper maintenance procedures (and the defendant restaurant’s own internal procedures) Mr. Streed developed the evidence to support the negligence claim and, as a result, the prominent fast food chain ultimately agreed to pay a significant settlement to man’s wife and adult sons to settle the wrongful death claim.
