While GMR typically focuses on defending personal injury matters, we also routinely represent individuals who were injured by the negligence or recklessness of others. In these circumstances, GMR utilizes our extensive litigation experience on both sides of a case to achieve the best possible outcomes for our clients.
The above settlement came out of a Philadelphia County case litigated by partner Matt Moroney. In this matter, GMR’s client was attending a public event when a security employee inappropriately grabbed his arm, which caused a spiral fracture of the mid-distal humeral shaft. Without any wage loss or outstanding medical bills, we were able to obtain discovery that resulted in a $450,000 settlement. We utilized our experience as both a defense firm as well as counsel for plaintiffs to gain important evidence through depositions and the use of experts to achieve a substantial settlement for our client. As always, GMR was ready to try the case to verdict. Even though the defendants denied liability, the defendants substantially increased the settlement offer on the eve of trial, and we were able to resolve the matter with a favorable settlement for our client.
