Our client “D.B.” is a 62-year-old woman who was having issues with her neighbors. They had created a homemade gate to help keep their children and dog in their yard, but the gate blocked D.B.’s access to her driveway and garage.When she went to the neighbors to talk about it, the discussion quickly escalated into a heated argument with pushing and yelling. The neighbor slammed the gate closed on D.B.’s hand, causing serious damage. The injury resulted in Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), also knows as RSD, a condition that is common after a serious injury. D.B. required two years of physical therapy, twice a week.In addition to the physical injuries, DB has dealt with harassment and threats from this neighbor. “You’re dealing with all young people here and you have no idea who you are dealing with,” she allegedly screamed to our client.We told the neighbor’s lawyers we were going to need depositions from everyone and were prepared to take this case to trial. We collected strong evidence to bolster our case. The lawyers ultimately negotiated with us for the money we knew our client deserved.
Our client was extremely happy with the outcome and wrote us a note, “From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you for all the hard work, hours and years you put into my case and believed in me. Your professionalism, dedication, efforts and patience are much appreciated. I am so happy I chose you as my lawyer.”
