Plaintiff allegedly sustained a serious injury while using a bicep/tricep machine at our client’s athletic facility. Plaintiff, whose past medical specials alone were in excess $270,000,00 sought $1,000,000.00 in recovery. Plaintiff, however, executed a liability waiver when she joined our client’s athletic facility. Therefore, after conducting targeted discovery, we moved for summary judgment based on Plaintiff’s express assumption of the risk.
Following a contentious argument, the motion for summary judgment, argued by Melissa Ingleby, was granted by the Court thereby barring Plaintiff’s recovery and effectively disposing of the matter.
A job well done to our Las Vegas Team, keep up the great work!
