Plaintiff grocery vendor settles after having wage loss and permanency claims barred

Attorney Michael Radak successfully barred significant aspects of plaintiff’s claim to warrant a significantly reduced settlement.  Plaintiff, a grocery vendor, slipped and fell on a wet floor behind the fish counter at the defendant’s grocery store.  Plaintiff incurred approximately $36,000 in medical bills with significant lost wages.  Plaintiff’s pre-trial demand was $300,000.  After ruling on motions in limine, which barred plaintiff’s wage loss claim and aspects of his claimed damages, plaintiff accepted $20,000 to settle the case.
