The following case examples and results are for informational purposes only. Past results cannot guarantee future performance. Any testimonial, endorsement, or result in any single particular case does not constitute a promise or guarantee regarding the outcome of any other case. The Boughter Law Office works aggressively to obtain the very best result for every client; however, each case is different with its own set of unique facts and the laws of the jurisdiction where the lawsuit must be filed. Likewise, results will always be different from case to case. For that reason, the result that the Boughter Law Office obtained in one case is in no way a guarantee that the same or similar result will occur in any future case.


Premises Liability-Trip/Fall

Recovery for a certified nursing assistant who tripped and fell at her patient’s home.  The patient’s daughter had placed a box directly outside of her bedroom and the client tripped over the box injuring her shoulder.  Unfortunately, the 56 year old CNA, was unable to return to her job because she could not lift over one pound given the lack of strength in her upper extremity.  The defense contested liability; however a deposition of the defendant revealed that the CNA had worked at that home for 6 years and never before did the daughter ever place anything directly outside the bedroom door. The Boughter Law Office retained a vocational economist who opined that there was no reasonable employment given her shoulder injury.  After litigating for nearly one year, the case settled at mediation.  In addition, the Boughter Law Office recovered $70,000.00 plus all medical bills paid for the client for a total payout of over $345,000.00.
