Our client was represented by his former attorney for injuries sustained from a fall while renting a condominium at the shore. The previous attorney alleged that the serious injuries sustained by our client were caused by the condominium association’s failure to maintain the steps leading to the rental unit. A trial was held in Federal Court and our client’s case was dismissed as a result of errors committed by the former attorney. A suit for legal malpractice against our client’s former attorney was filed. The legal issues involved in the case were complex and had not yet been decided by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court which meant that, regardless of what verdict a jury might render, an appeal was a certainty and it would be years before the issues would finally be decided. After extensive discovery and the retaining of numerous experts, the case was ultimately settled on the eve of trial for $600,000.
