Significant Slip-And-Fall Cases

DEFECTIVE DOWN SPOUT

The Plaintiff slipped and fell on ice and slush. This dangerous condition was created as a result of a defective down spout, which permitted water to leak therefrom. The Plaintiff sustained a subtrochanteric hip fracture and is now forced to walk with a limp. The case settled in favor of the Plaintiff prior to litigation.

DEFECTIVE SPRINKLER SYSTEM

The Plaintiff fell in a grocery store. The dangerous condition was created as a result of a sprinkler system used by the store to sprinkle its produce. The Plaintiff alleged that the store should have taken greater care in protecting patrons from water that accumulated on the floor as the result of customers picking up produce and putting them in their buggies. The law firm of LGKG alleged that the failure to provide additional protection by way of carpeting, wet floor cone signage, or periodic mopping was negligence. As a result of the fall, the Plaintiff sustained a disc herniation in her neck. The case settled in favor of the Plaintiff after two days of trial.

DEFECTIVE SIDEWALK

An elderly Plaintiff had fallen on a downtown sidewalk fracturing one thumb. The Defendant's insurance company contested liability, claiming that the Plaintiff tripped over a defect in the sidewalk which should have been obvious. The jury awarded a verdict in favor of the Plaintiff.

INADEQUATE LIGHTING

The Plaintiff was taking her father to the emergency room. She arrived at the hospital after midnight. The walkway leading to the emergency room entrance did not have adequate lighting. As a result, the Plaintiff was unable to adequately view the walkway. The walkway was uneven thereby causing her to fall. As a result, the Plaintiff sustained injuries to her back and shoulder. The jury awarded a verdict in favor of the Plaintiff.
