$2,500,000 Settlement – Apartment Complex Sexual Assault
Shiver Hamilton Campbell represented a young lady who was the victim of a sexual assault by the maintenance man at her apartment complex. Our client and the maintenance man had a prior relationship, so the insurance company and its lawyers refused to admit any responsibility, evening repeatedly telling us that our claim had no merit.
During the investigation conducted by Shiver Hamilton Campbell, documents were uncovered that proved our client’s family had made numerous complaints to management about the maintenance man’s suspicious behavior towards our client. We also learned that the maintenance man was negligently allowed to make copies of our client’s keys.
Shiver Hamilton Campbell diligently pursued the case and were proceeding to trial when the insurance company suddenly asked to mediate the case. The case resolved at mediation for $2,500,000.
