Free Consultation / Contingency Fee Basis

Premises Liability

Swanson Gardner Meyers Cohon PLLC, has secured record setting results regarding premises liability.

We represented a Seattle firefighter in a lawsuit that yielded the largest verdict for a Premises Liability case in the State’s history, $12,752,094.

The City of Seattle was found negligent when a Seattle firefighter, subbing for a firefighter at a station not his own, fell 15 feet through an unsecured pole hole on his way to the bathroom in the middle of the night, sustaining permanent and life-altering disabilities. A similar incident occurred 20 years earlier at the same firehouse, and the solution was to install a chain barrier. Over time, the chain barrier was no longer used, and our client fell through the same hole. The jury awarded nearly $13 million dollars following a 6 week trial. The City appealed, and in 2012, the Court of Appeals upheld the King County Superior Court verdict.
