Chapter 214 Renovation Case 1
Chapter 214: Renovation Case 1
She had seen too many parties, rich, poor, stingy, and generous. The person in front of her was not really stingy, but just pretended to be stingy and wanted to bargain. Even from his appearance, he was not trying to bargain for real.
Darcy couldn’t discuss it with her right now, because, the nurse just said it right, there was still half a bottle of liquid left, but he…. wanted to go to the toilet.
There was a woman lawyer standing beside him who was not smiling. She was talking to him about the case very seriously. She was so focused that he had the illusion.
However, these were not the main point. The main point was that his right foot was disabled, the potion was hanging on his left foot, and the entire lower half of his body was disabled. There was still half of the potion in the bottle.
What to do, can only endure, and try to divert attention, began to listen carefully to the analysis of the female lawyer.
Serena didn’t notice anything strange about him at first, just said
“I need to first look at the contract you signed with the decoration company and the design plan at that time. What is your appeal?”
“The decoration company agreed to terminate the contract, so it naturally realized its mistake. I am a fair person, and the decoration cost is 1.20 million in total. I will let him pay 1.50 million.”
“1.50 million?” The unexpected figure, the total cost of decoration 1.20 million, under normal circumstances, it would be good if the decoration company could compensate you half. Decoration style is a matter of
benevolence and wisdom, and it is difficult to determine who is right and who is wrong in court.
“Of course I have to 1.50 million, delay my construction period, smash the wall to hire workers, cost money, I have to redecorate, can’t open on schedule, heavy losses.” Darcy said with certainty, and then fine sweat broke out on his forehead, and his face became more and more ugly.
“It’s like this, Mr. Kirby, the specific amount of compensation needs to be calculated before it can be determined. There are specific accounting standards in the law.” She needed to vaccinate him in advance to lower his psychological expectations.
Darcy said nothing, his face pale.
“Mr. Kirby, what’s wrong with you? Does your leg hurt?”
“Call a nurse…” He couldn’t take it anymore, this infusion… how did it transform in his body so quickly….
Serena was startled and hurriedly got up to help him ring the bell. Seeing that the nurse didn’t come in time, she trotted to the nurse’s desk to find the nurse. The ward door opened at this time, and the nurse rushed over.
“Go to the toilet.” Seeing the nurse was like seeing a savior.
The nurse took it for granted, pulling out the infusion tube for him while muttering
“As I said just now, it is very inconvenient for adults to have infusions on their feet.”
Darcy was lying on his back just now, and he couldn’t see his height. At this time, he was supported by the nurse to stand up. Serena almost looked up to see his face.
“Serena, do you want to avoid it?” Darcy suddenly turned back and said to her.
“Yeah” She cleared her throat and consciously retreated to the door outside the ward to stand.
Within two seconds, the nurse was also kicked out and stood outside the door with her
, “Very hypocritical, and I don’t need to support it.”
“Are you his friend? Persuade him to find a male nurse. This leg won’t heal in two months.”
“Where’s his family?” Serena asked.
“After he was hospitalized, he left. During the surgery yesterday, his mother didn’t know what had happened to him, so she cried bitterly outside. When she found out that he only had a broken leg, she said that it was normal for a boy to have a broken leg, and it was not life- threatening.
As the nurse spoke, she heard a muffled sound from inside, as if someone had fallen to the ground.
Not good! The nurse and Serena hurriedly pushed the door and entered. Sure enough, they saw Darcy sitting on the ground, trying to prop himself up with his hands. The nurse went to check the bandage on his right leg for the first time.
“Why didn’t you call me?”
Serena helped the nurse get him up because his right foot couldn’t touch the ground and almost all the weight was on her, waiting to get him into bed, so tired she was sweating.
The man who was supposed to be in a mess looked relaxed and took it for granted. He was seriously thinking about whether he should continue to stick the infusion needle in his left foot? It is indeed very inconvenient to infusion on the foot, and it seems that he can only endure the pain and not play games.
Renovation Case 1
Obediently stretched out his left hand to let the nurse stick the needle for infusion, so if he had known this earlier, why did he have to do it in the first place?
He was now very leisurely chatting with Serena, and immediately called someone to send the contract with the decoration company, the design plan, and various receipts and invoices. He was going to finalize this matter today.
After a while, the materials were all in Serena’s hands, and he emphasized again
“Serena, then please. My request is very simple, pay 1.50 million.”
“I’ll look at the materials first.”
Serena has her own principles in handling cases, and will not blindly agree to some unreasonable requests from the client. Sometimes it is necessary to appropriately lower the client’s expectations, which means that it is also important to manage the client’s expectations.
One afternoon, she was in the ward, looking at the contract Darcy signed with the decoration company at that time, especially the breach of contract clauses, and then carefully compared the design scheme at that time with the decoration scheme.
How to say, there are indeed obvious differences between the designed renderings and the actual finished product, but some differences are within the allowable range. No matter how good the renderings are, it is difficult to restore them 100% in the actual decoration.
Darcy’s staff also brought a file bag full of various receipts, saying
“This is the receipt we kept during the renovation, so we have to 1.50 million is supported by evidence.”
Serena took the receipt, flipped it over and said
Chapter 214 Renovation Case 1
“A large part of the receipts here have little to do with the renovation at this time. If they are brought to court, they will be rejected by the judge.‘ She told her truthfully.
“It doesn’t matter, you just provide the evidence at the time, whether it’s useful or not, and we’ll talk about it later.” Darcy’s staff spoke in the same way as him, all of them were quite confident and self–confident.
Serena glanced at her phone, it was almost time to pick up two little ancestors from kindergarten. At this time, Darcy spoke
“Serena, this case is entrusted to you. These materials and evidence can be taken with you.”
“Okay, I’ll send you the agency contract later, and you can sign it.”
Serena didn’t expect Darcy to believe her so quickly and entrust the case to her without even asking the price. Her principal–agent contract has several templates, and different contracts are issued for different groups of people.
For a client like Darcy, the attorney’s fee for the agency contract she issued was naturally the highest.
