The Monson Law Firm attorneys Matthew Monson and Rachel Flarity recently won a decision before the Louisiana Fifth Circuit Court of Appeal in the case of “Peter and Laurie Yaukey v. Henry Ballard, et al.” In this case, plaintiffs alleged damages and personal injuries from alleged exposure to mold at a rental property, including breast cancer, fibromyalgia, constipation and hyperthyroidism. During this matter, plaintiffs presented a demand for damages of $2,000,000. After deposing plaintiffs’ treating physicians, The Monson Law Firm filed a Motion for Summary Judgment on the issue of medical causation, which was denied by the trial court. On March 20, 2019, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeal reversed the trial court and granted defendants’ request for summary judgment.
