Inadequate Security $1,000,000 settlement from a $25,000 insurance policy

A $1,000,000 settlement was reached on behalf of Plaintiff, John Doe, who died as a result of an unprovoked punch to the head. Plaintiff brought this case against the company where this incident occurred. The case ultimately settled before trial after Plaintiff established that the company had insufficient and inadequate security on the night of the incident. Evidence showed that the presence of security guards or off duty police officers would have deterred and prevented the perpetrator from punching and killing the 25-year-old victim. The assailant is now serving a 9-year prison sentence and the company has agreed to provide security from now on. Tom Scolaro secured the $1,000,000 settlement from the insurance carrier on $25,000 policy limits.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
I have known Ira for several decades and without a doubt he represents the best of the profession- a never ending commitment to his clients and a perpetual desire for learning and sharing his expertise with his colleagues. Richard
★★★★★
I found, and still find, that Ira’s firm will evaluate the case fairly and provide the client with a reasonably expectation of the process involved and will avoid giving false hope where there is none. Also Ira’s firm consistently keeps in constant touch with the client as well as referring attorneys so each knows the progress of a case. Finally I can tell you that if I personally were injured, Ira Leesfield is the first person I would call. Michael Browning
