Rinehardt Injury Attorneys - September 2020


Game Day Turkey Chili

Seems like an open and shut case, but the restaurant’s insurance company denies the claim. The mom comes to Rinehardt Law, and we spring into action. First, we send a letter requiring the restaurant to preserve any video from interior cameras of the area. The restaurant’s insurance company admits there is video but says it doesn’t show anything that would explain why the floor was wet. The insurance company says over and over that the store is not responsible and refuses to turn over the video. Rinehardt Law does not give up. We get the court to order the video to be produced. Lo and behold, the video shows one of the store’s employees mopping the floor just 10 minutes prior to the fall. Significantly, the employee does not put out a wet floor sign. The mystery of the wet floor is solved, and the insurance is forced to pay for the harms the mom suffered. The moral of the story is that when video footage proves that the business is responsible, the insurance company will fight tooth and nail to keep from turning it over. At Rinehardt Law, we don’t quit until we have forced them to cough it up.
