AUSTIN, Texas, April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Austin personal injury attorneys at Briggle & Polan are committed to helping victims and families who have suffered harm through no fault of their own. As a result of their experience, passion for helping others through tough times, and focus on creating customized legal strategies, the firm's legal team has helped numerous clients across Austin, the state of Texas, and the nation recover the compensation they rightfully deserved. Just recently, the firm's founding Partners – Attorneys Parker Polan and Hayden Briggle – obtained a significant $255,000 settlement on behalf of a local carpenter who was severely injured at his apartment complex.
The case stemmed from an incident that occurred when the man – a local carpenter in Austin – was walking through the parking lot of his apartment complex. While walking, the man stepped into a ground grate that was not properly secured. As a result, he shattered his right knee. The injuries to his knee were so severe that a total knee replacement was required.
As skilled and proven negotiators, Attorneys Polan and Briggle were successful in reaching a settlement prior to trial. The $255,000 settlement will provide the man with the necessary funds to pay for his past medical bills, any future surgeries that he may require, and the lost work wages he suffered while rehabilitating from his serious injury and surgery.
By securing the settlement, Briggle & Polan have helped the man obtain a sense of justice and compensation to which he was entitled. They were also successful in highlighting the negligence of those who were responsible for maintaining the premises and the ground grate, which can play a role in preventing the issue from causing similar injuries in the future.
