When winning is the only option

$101,000 Philadelphia Settlement

Our 90 year old client fell on a sidewalk when he walked into a thick tree limb, after it struck him in the face. As a result of this fall, our elderly client broke his lower leg. His children contacted numerous law firms and chose to hire Ostroff Law, because we were committed to taking fast action due to our client’s very advanced age and quickly deteriorating health. Most other firms were not interested in helping a man of this advanced age, concerned that they would be unable to prove that he fell due to the branch and not due to his age and/or health. Ostroff Law filed a lawsuit in Philadelphia within 3 days of being hired and scheduled the deposition of this client, so we could preserve his story before his health deteriorated and he had no recollection of what occurred. We also hired an investigator to canvas the neighborhood for eyewitnesses and hired a tree expert who rendered the opinion that the tree created a danger for those using the sidewalk and violated a city ordinance by growing too close to the sidewalk. The insurance policy limit on the home that was a rental unit was $100,000. Ostroff Law this entire policy within 15 months of this incident. Our firm takes great pride in taking tough cases like this one and winning justice for clients that many other lawyers may not be willing to fight for.
