INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hurst Limontes LLC, an Indiana-based personal injury law firm, has announced a successful jury trial outcome for its client in a premises liability case located in Fulton County, Indiana. The incident stemmed from an unrepaired sidewalk that created a hazardous environment for apartment tenants. The disrepair resulted in a fall with injuries, requiring surgery for the plaintiff.

“We’re pleased with the outcome of this complex case,” said Alex Limontes, managing partner for Hurst Limontes. “Our team overcame notable challenges and was able to successfully provide justice for our injured client.”

The case was argued by Attorney Katherine “Katie” Karres and was a bifurcated (split) trial on liability. Karres was able to successfully strike eight jurors for cause, some of whom knew the defendant, resulting in a final jury pool of six women. The jury deliberated for about an hour and returned a verdict that assigned 80% fault to the defendant and 20% to the plaintiff. Under Indiana’s comparative fault system, these percentages will factor into the finalized damage amount.

“Our client had previously fallen four weeks earlier at this location, which had been in a consistent state of disrepair,” said Karres. “Cases like these are important because they not only provide justice for the injured party, but by holding negligent parties accountable, they can help prevent further incidents and injuries in the future.”
