Premises Liability

  • $1 Million for Slip and Fall

    Our client suffered severe Neck injuries when he tripped on a torn carpet at the top of the stairs in a multi family property. As he approached the top of the steps his foot slid under the torn carpet causing him to fall  down 14 stairs. He suffered a fracture to his neck which required mulitple surgeries to repair. The defense argued that the plaintiff was intoxicated at the time of his fall. Our extensive discovery revealed that the property owner knew of the torn carpets but chose to ignore the dangerous condition. During litigation, the defendant tried to remove the torn carpets after they learned we were scheduled to perform a site inspection. That strategy backfired on the defense when the court permitted plaintiff to add a claim against the defendant for spoliation of evidence.  This case involved a challenging set of liability facts with significant harm to our client. The case settled on the eve of trial for the entire $1 Million policy which insured the property.
