Congratulations to David R. Heffernan, the team at Kaire & Heffernan, LLC and their client on this confidential settlement. The parents of a young woman who suffered substantial injuries, including traumatic brain injury, after falling from a bridge embankment hired David R. Heffernan to investigate a potential claim against a Master Homeowners Association.
The then college student fell from the bridge embankment while running. Through extensive investigation, Kaire & Heffernan was able to discover that the defendant was fully aware and on notice of the hazards and risks to pedestrians and runners who routinely utilized the bridge embankment as a short cut. Further digging revealed that four years earlier a young lawyer suffered a traumatic brain injury from a fall from the same bridge, which resulted in litigation. The defendant(s) was fully aware of these dangers and their ability to prevent same as they fenced off the bridge railing in the weeks following this young woman’s tragedy. Based upon the information which Kaire & Heffernan developed, they were able to get Defendant(s) to agree to a pre-suit Mediation. The case was settled at mediation which occurred only 15 months after the incident. The money allows the plaintiff to have the 24/7 lifelong care required to provide her the proper quality of life following her devastating injuries, and provides her access to the latest technology and cutting edge medical care available.
