15,000,000 Settlement- Sexual Assault 

We obtained a confidential settlement on behalf of a sexual assault victim for $15,000,000.  Our client was sexually assaulted in her apartment after being awakened by a stranger at the foot of her bed.

The assailant had been allowed to live in the complex, even though he had a criminal history. The apartment complex denied knowing the assailant was living on the property. Through our investigation, we found two former employees of the apartment complex who testified they knew the assailant lived on the property and told the property manager about the assailant. 

We also learned the window latches apartment complex were faulty. It is believed the assailant entered through a faulty window.

Throughout the litigation, we defeated three separate motions for summary judgment and a motion to exclude our expert witness

The insurance companies initially denied the claim and offered nothing. After we secured the testimony of these witnesses and discovered the faulty window latches, and as the court was preparing him to place this case on a trial calendar, the defendants and three different insurance companies agreed to settle the case for $15,000,000.
