Jacqueline Robert v. Robert Cheek, Sr.
Plaintiff sustained injuries to the head and shoulder in a fall at a short-term rental property in New Orleans. The head injury required stitches, and included concussion. The shoulder injury aggravated a pre-existing left shoulder rotator cuff tear, and required surgery. An architectural expert inspected the premises and located a hazardous defect in the threshold where the plaintiff fell. Defendants asserted an insurance coverage defense, arguing that the property was not covered under homeowners while being rented. We reached a settlement with the homeowner’s insurer and insurance agent.
