$ 3.25 million
Negligence: Settlement After Mediation
Mr. Kelly went to trial in the Civil District Court of New Orleans and won a $3.25 million verdict for a New Orleans man who was seriously injured in a house explosion. The Firm proved at trial that the landlord of the home was negligent when he covered an exposed gas line in the kitchen, which resulted in the explosion. The Firm’s client had multiple back, shoulder and knee surgeries as a result of the explosion, as well as his loss of income and earning capacity.
