"I suffered serious injuries because a janitor left streaks of water
on a tile floor in the hallway of a building, which caused me to slip
and fall while exiting from one of my patient's hospital room. The
insurance company denied the claim, forcing my attorneys, the Habbas law
office, to file a lawsuit. The Habbas firm was very aggressive and thorough.
The investigated the accident and they questioned all important witnesses
and gathered all of the evidence required to prove negligence. Although
my claim was initially denied, a substantial settlement was obtained by
the Habbas firm. Prior to this incident, I have never had a personal injury
