The plaintiff alleges she was riding her bike and exiting a Century Village in Deerfield Beach when a gate arm crashed down on her causing significant physical and mental injuries. Allegedly, Kent Security was in charge of security in the condominium subdivision. While we don't know the plaintiff and won't take sides in this dispute, we hope she makes a full recovery and wish her well. Safety for those who use bicycles should be a priority in the state.
Having looked at the complaint and the other documents on the case, it is my opinion that the plaintiff has a very skilled and aggressive attorney -- Kenneth Segal. He has an office in Coral Springs, FL, and has been an attorney for over 20 years. Like Alan Elkins, he is doing a noble job in Broward County by defending those who suffer personal injuries caused by other parties. Our society should absolutely recognize when attorneys defend the little guy and fight for justice, and do away with the callous lawyer jokes. People like Richard Celler, Alan Elkins, and Kenneth Segal deserve more credit than what is already given to them. They are among the heroes of our society.
Here is the complaint.
