The Los Angeles Daily Journal, Verdicts and Settlements Section, published a result in favor of Murchison & Cumming's client in a premises liability case in a personal injury matter where a senior citizen sought millions of dollars in damages. Robert Finnerty and Christopher Aumais of Girardi Keese tried the case on behalf of both plaintiffs. In the case, the plaintiff, a 77-year-old woman, allegedly tripped and fell over a concrete wheel stop located in the disabled parking stall section of a parking lot owned by a not-for-profit medical clinic in Winnetka, CA. The case was handled by Richard C. Moreno and Lisa D. Angelo. After an eight day jury trial which included testimony from two liability experts, two shoulder surgeons, an upper extremity expert, two life care planners, an economist, an architect, and six percipient witnesses, the jury took less than 45 minutes to render a defense verdict in favor of the defendant.
