Earlier this year, Palumbo Wolfe & Palumbo, P.C. filed a claim on behalf of a client who suffered a traumatic injury while on premises at Sagewood, an Arizona retirement living community. The claim alleges that the companies that own, manage, maintain and control the premises are liable for the damages suffered by the client and her husband.
On November 19th of 2014, a raised partition fell on Palumbo Wolfe & Palumbo’s client, which caused the traumatic amputation of her leg as well as other serious injuries, which her husband witnessed. The firm is arguing that the defendants should have known that the risk of injury existed, and should have remedied the hazard or warned others of the risk.
The claim seeks to pursue compensation for the following:
- General damages to plaintiff
- Medical and related expenses
- Loss of companionship suffered by the plaintiff’s husband
- Punitive damages
- Costs incurred through lawsuit
