Personal Injury Defense - Edward Cook and Karen Cook, et al. v. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.
Mr. Groome represented a co-defendant roofing company alleged to have negligently repaired a roof, allowing water intrusion which in turn caused a nurse to fall and injure herself. Her injuries resulted in two shoulder surgeries for torn rotator cuffs and a neck surgery on a disc. The nurse plaintiff had a significant loss of wage claim as she now cannot extend her arms or carry any weight. Her settlement demand was $1.5 million. After two years of discovery, a roofing co-defendant filed a motion for summary judgment which was denied. Subsequently, Deutsch, Kerrigan & Stiles filed a motion for summary judgment, which was granted after oral argument in early December 2010.
