We had a family that came to us after a disabled veteran went through the rail and essentially got clotheslined by the top rail, so we brought an action against the apartment complex where he was living at when it happened. They denied liability and said that it was his own negligence that caused that – his death. We were able to take this through trial and convince the jury that the issue here was the failure of the apartment complex to maintain the railing in good working order and all the other things that the apartment complex were pointing to were just red herrings.
