In an example of 'fighting the good fight' Marc Rosenberg has obtained a 'One Half Million ($500,000.00) Dollar' verdict on a slip and fall case which most (NON PAAJ) attorneys would not have even touched. The case involved a slip and fall at Whole Foods Market in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for a 79 year-old woman who tripped over the cement barrier (wheel stop) in a parking garage. In a case where nothing was offered until an ADR mediation (at which time only $80K was offered and rejected)—this is a case in which the rightful verdict was reached to compensate this elderly individual for their sustained injuries.
