Orlando Slip & Fall Accident Case — The Umansky Law Firm is currently representing a client, a government clerk, who slipped and fell down a flight of stairs at a beach resort on Memorial Day weekend. After investigation it was determined that the fall was caused by uneven steps, poor lighting, and numerous other building code violations. Unfortunately the client’s vacation turned into a nightmare. Due to her fall, the client sustained a fractured leg and surgery was performed. The Umansky Law Firm demanded payment to the client. After building owner made an inadequate offer, the lawyers decided to file suit. In order to avoid responsibility for the accident, the building owner filed bankruptcy. The lawyers at the Umansky Law Firm subsequently filed a claim in the bankruptcy court to protect the rights of the client and are on the sidelines waiting for the bankruptcy to discharge so that the lawyers can again pursue a claim in state court against the building owner’s insurance proceeds of $1,000,000.
