Settlement for victim of assault

Plaintiff was the victim of a vicious assault at the hands of two individuals, leaving her with permanent injuries.  We commenced an action against the individuals, as well as against the facility where the incident occurred – alleging that the facility knew or should have known that the assailants were waiting outside for plaintiff prior to the assault. 

The facility aggressively contested liability, but ultimately when faced with the prospect of a trial settled the case with the plaintiff following a contentious mediation. 

The plaintiff, unfortunately, will never be made whole, but the settlement at the very least has helped establish some sense of justice having been served.
