Verdicts & Settlements

$1.7 million jury verdict in negligent security case

Simon Wiseman and his trial partner, Riley Allen  recently obtained a $1.7 million verdict from a jury in Orange County, Florida in a negligent security case. Mr.Wiseman's client was robbed and shot while parking his car at the Embassy Suites, Jamaican Court Orlando.  Although Mr. Wiseman's client survived he sustained severe injuries. There was a lack of security, which was provided by SecurAmerica, patrolling the outside of the hotel because they were performing housekeeping duties on the inside of the hotel at the request of the hotel. 

This lack of attention to deterring crime on the outside of the hotel made the hotel a target for crime. This was evidenced when 10 days earlier a guest was robbed and shot in the parking lot of he hotel in almost identical fashion. Mr. Wiseman and Mr. Allen were able to expose this neglect. As a result, Mr. wiseman was able to get an excellent result for his client.

Mr. Wiseman stated: "This was a David v. Goliath trial where "David" defeated "corporate America", which included the likes of Hilton, Embassy Suites, SecurAmerica and Interstate hotel management company. I hope the Embassy Suites hotel will change its ways by spending more money on security to keeps its guests safe, especially in a tourist area such as International Drive."

Mr.Wiseman emphasizes to his clients that underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage is one fo the most important types of car insurance coverage you can buy because you have to insure yourself in Florida against the other drivers on the road that do not have insurance coverage or do not have enough insurance coverage.

This was as strange case where the driver of the at fault vehicle fell unconscious (due to a medical condistion) at the time he struck the rear of our client's vehicle.

As a result, Mr. Wiseman was able to get his client an excellent result for the type of injury sustained.   The FMCSA can be a great weapon in truck accident cases but you must choose a lawyer experienced in these types of cases.  Mr. Wiseman has that experience and would be privileged to help you.
