Nuisance Claim Settles Successfully

December 19, 2017

Patton & Ryan successfully secured a settlement in a pre-suit matter involving a five-year-old child being forced off a bus and sent home without a guardian present.

Plaintiffs alleged severe emotional distress due to the negligence of the driver. They demanded $155,000 for both the child and mother. Patton & Ryan engaged in extensive research into the Plaintiffs’ background and conducted interviews with numerous individuals involved. This aggressive approach led to offering a nuisance counter-offer of $1,500. This represents a mere fraction, 1%, of Plaintiff’s original demand.

As a result of Patton & Ryan’s thorough investigation, diligent representation, and vigorous defense tactics, the case against the bus company and school district was settled pre-suit without the need of expensive litigation costs.
