Habbas faced an uphill battle with the insurance company associated with the apartment complex in this case. The insurance carrier was initially refusing to accept responsibility and vigorously defended the causation of our client’s injuries. Due to Habbas’ aggressive representation, the matter settled in litigation for $500,000.
Cases of this nature typically require that the landlord has knowledge or should have known of the dangerous condition that causes the injury. It’s not common for defendants, or their representatives, to admit that critical fact. This requires a diligent discovery plan, including written discovery, depositions, investigations, and expert witnesses. Our firm will not shy from litigating these matters. If the landlord is to cheap to fix a condition and make sure its safe for living, we will do everything in our power to get them to pay for their actions and/or inaction.
