RWG Litigation Victory for Our Client

News Release

RWG has achieved an important victory for the City of Temecula. Robert Ceccon represented our client in the lawsuit, brought by a plaintiff who alleged that he tripped and fell on City property and sustained fractures of his C-4 and C-7 vertebrae.

In Pederson v. City of Temecula, The City argued that the accident did not occur as plaintiff claimed, that plaintiff did not trip and fall on City property, and that the property in question was not a dangerous condition.

Following a 6-day jury trial, plaintiff requested that the jury award $1,300,000 in damages.  The jury deliberated for less than 30 minutes, found that the property where plaintiff alleged he fell was not a dangerous condition of public property, and returned a verdict in favor of the City.
