A jury awarded Nicholas Tzaneteas’ client $6.8m for injuries resulting from the collapse of her apartment’s bathroom ceiling, which caused her spinal injuries.
— Personal injuries that occur through no fault of the individual are some of the most painful and distressing events in a person’s life. What’s more, they have the potential to affect that person’s career, personal life and capabilities permanently. It is a person’s legal right to seek compensation for those injuries and hold those responsible accountable. The Law Office of Nicholas Tzaneteas understands this, and lawyer Nicholas Tzaneteas has a long history of supporting clients, whom others would not help. Most recently, he has helped to secure $6.8 million in compensation for a woman with severe spinal injuries caused by a ceiling collapse in her apartment.
Nicholas Tzaneteas, who is an experienced ceiling collapse lawyer worked up the case, covering every detail, and took her case to court. Liability was quickly established after the cause of the collapse was identified — a leaking ceiling, which his client had requested the apartment’s owners and managing company to fix several times.
The jury heard of the surgery, extensive physical therapy, and his client’s inability to perform certain tasks in her role as a graduating nurse, limiting her future career potential. The jury also heard of the extensive future therapy and surgery she will need. Though the defense argued against these points, her premises liability accident attorney had expert witnesses to back up her claims as well as the treating doctor.
A spokesperson for The Law Office of Nicholas Tzaneteas said, “We are thrilled to have helped our client to get the compensation she deserves in a court of law. She will certainly need this money to help get her life back on course after it was set back by the negligence of the defendants. We thank the jury for understanding the details of the case and for making a fair and just decision on the damages awarded. We hope this will help our client move on with her life and concentrate on her future, not her trauma.”
