As your Orlando attorney, Carolyn Salzmann is constantly staying aware
of cases concerning personal injury and premises liability. Recently a
jury awarded a sum of money to comedian George Wallace in a personal injury
case against a prominent Las Vegas hotel.
Wallace’s leg was injured in 2007 while performing at the Bellagio
hotel. He claims that his leg became permanently affected after becoming
entangled on stage during a private performance for HSBC Card Services
Inc. The jury decided in a 6-2 decision that the Bellagio was at fault
and that Wallace has lost out on earnings because of this incident. The
jury awarded 1.2 million dollars for lost income, $100,000 for pain and
suffering, and $8,500 for medical expenses.
Though Wallace’s representation sought over seven million dollars
in damages, he was satisfied with the 1.3 million dollars awarded. If
