DSB secured a pre-deposition voluntary discontinuance from the attorney of an injured party in a personal injury action early in the litigation.  Plaintiff alleged that she tripped due to a broken/defective city sidewalk abutting DSB’s client’s premises. DSB was able to demonstrate that, even if the condition was located on the sidewalk abutting our clients’ residential property, the clients could not be liable as a matter of law.  Plaintiff’s counsel agreed and voluntary withdrew their case.  DSB’s strategy significantly reduced defense costs and eliminated potential exposure for the client.
