Negligence: Settlement After Mediation

AKD went to trial in the case of Schreiber vs JCC, and won a $17,000,000 jury verdict in the Civil District Court of New Orleans. The case involved a local athletic club, wherein the Firm’s client, Mr. Schreiber, sustained serious spinal injuries in an accident during a basketball game. His injuries caused incomplete quadriplegia and rendered the healthy young athlete confined to a wheelchair. The Firm was able to prove to the jury at trial that the athletic club was negligent in the maintenance and operations of its facility, which caused Mr. Schreiber’s life changing accident. The award included a sizable loss of income and earning capacity.
