Monarch Law represented a plaintiff after he slipped and fell down exterior stairs where the owner of the property failed to properly remove snow and icy conditions from the stairs. After slipping, the plaintiff struck his head and back as he fell down the staircase, suffering significant and permanent injuries, including cognitive issues, blurred vision, and back pain. Despite defenses raised to combat liability and arguments presented to diminish the plaintiff’s injuries, Attorney Seiden and the Monarch Law team were able to advocate for resolution of the case, ultimately agreeing to a settlement of $132,500.00 in favor of Monarch Law’s client.
In the News: Recent Unemployment Issues
Individuals have been calling Monarch Law on a weekly basis. We believe the “Notice of Potential Liability” is a major reason for the “clawing” back of benefits. In effect, the notice grants the employer a second shot at contesting a former employee’s receipt of benefits. In some instances, employers are protesting for the first time, months after payments were issued. Look for our next article for more information about this very important issue impacting CT residents and business owners.
