$195k Negotiated for Wheel Stop Accident in Parking Lot

Our client came with children to El Toro Carniceria in Santa, Ana, Southern California. They got out of the vehicle and tripped and fell on a wheel stop in the parking lot. Our client sustained severe and debilitating injuries as a result of this incident. As discussed below, the defendant failed to exercise ordinary care to keep the premises in a reasonably safe condition, actually and proximately causing our client’s resulting injuries.

Our client was transported to the emergency department of St. Joseph Hospital Orange for evaluation after a fall in a parking lot. Our client complained of pain in the right leg and right hip. Physical examination showed soft tissue tenderness and swelling of the right hip/buttock.

The X-rays of the right femur revealed an acute fracture superimposed on the right hip arthroplasty involving the proximal femur at the level of the femoral component of the arthroplasty with minimal displacement. In the emergency department, orthopedics was consulted, and our client was given Norco to palliate their pain symptoms. Another orthopedics doctor was consulted, and operative management was recommended.
