After much research, it was ultimately determined that Kern county was the responsible party. Moore and his team pushed legal action against the county, making a case that this dangerous condition has been around years prior to our client’s fall. Moore provided evidence of multiple eye-witness government employees, who drive past that sidewalk on a daily basis. This supported Moore’s argument that it should have been known that this accident-prone condition existed and should have been fixed long before our client’s incident.
The case was brought to mediation, where the county offered nothing going in. However, Moore and his team were able to settle the case for $140,000.
