CASE: Our client was operating a Honda Motorcycle when struck by a careless driver. Our client suffered a fractured femur, fractured right clavicle, multiple abrasions and bruises.
CASE: Our client was a young mother who went to a corner convenience store to get some cough medicine for her sick child. It was near closing time and as she was shopping, a masked man entered the store. The man had a gun and demanded cash from the store clerks. Instead of just turning the money over in the cash register, the store clerks pulled out a gun and started shooting. At least one shot was returned by the armed robber. Our client was struck in the arm. The armed robber fled and was never apprehended. Malek & Malek initiated a lawsuit against the convenience store for negligence. The large firm lawyers hired by the insurance company argued that it was the robber’s bullet that struck our client’s arm. They also argued that our client had a pre-existing injury to her arm and that they had no responsibility.
CASE: Client was a passenger in a motor vehicle that was side swiped by a semi-truck. After the impact, the driver of the motor vehicle (which had been side swiped by the semi) pulled over to the side of the road to assess the damage. The passenger exited the vehicle as well. While assessing the damage to the vehicle, the passenger fell off the overpass to the ground below and sustained significant injuries. Malek & Malek immediately initiated an investigation. While there were never any citations issued, Malek & Malek was able to determine that a specific semi driver was in the area around the same time that the initial impact occurred. A lawsuit was filed against the semi driver and the trucking company he worked for. The trucking company lawyers argued that their driver was not involved in the crash. Furthermore, they blamed our client for his own injuries, arguing that had he been more careful, he never would have fallen from the overpass.
CASE: Client was shot by an armed robber in the parking lot of an apartment complex. The bullet penetrated his spine, paralyzing him from the neck down. The armed robber fled the scene and was never apprehended. Attorneys of Malek & Malek sued the apartment complex for failing to provide reasonable security to the tenants and their guests.
CASE: Client lost ten of his family members in an apartment fire on the west side of Columbus. A team of investigators hired by Malek & Malek determined that the fire had been intentionally started as a result of an arsonist. A lawsuit was filed by Malek & Malek. After multiple depositions, it was discovered that the apartment complex had known about several prior arson events and that management was aware of a significant crime problem in the apartment complex. It was shown that the management and owners of the apartment complex had taken few, if any, measures to prevent a foreseeable arson event from occurring.
