Partner, Darrell Calvin, and associate, Tarin Holcomb, recently negotiated a very favorable settlement on behalf of the client, a commercial property owner of a Houston apartment complex, in a wrongful death suit filed by the family of a 37 year old woman who drowned in the swimming pool at the complex. Although Plaintiffs alleged numerous negligent acts, the primary allegation centered around the lack of a lifeguard, non-functioning emergency phone at the pool, and malfunctioning gates at the complex which delayed emergency personnel from getting to the victim in a timely manner. These allegations were vigorously denied by the complex and through the hard work and diligence of Calvin and Holcomb, significant evidence was uncovered and developed to refute the allegations. As a result, when the case approached trial, the family accepted a settlement well below six figures rather than risk a no liability finding by the jury.
