A truck driver slipped and fell on a wet floor in a restaurant, injuring his back and leaving him disabled. He hired a law firm to handle his claim for personal injury. The firm neglected the case until the filing deadline was about to run and then sued the wrong restaurant, causing the case to be dismissed. I then filed a malpractice case against the law firm. The jury awarded the truck driver $400,000 in damages.
