$2,000,000 – Slip & Fall – Leak In Bathroom – Spine & Knee Injuries
Our client was a 38-year-old woman who slipped and fell on water in her bathroom caused by a leak. She sustained injuries to her neck and knee. Following her physical therapy, she underwent arthroscopic surgery on her knee. Due to chronic complaints of neck pain and a failed course of conservative treatment, she eventually underwent cervical spine surgery.
The owner of the property claimed that she slipped and fell in the shower based on a statement attributed to her in the ambulance call report. However, she denied ever making it. Additionally, the property owner claimed they were not negligent, and there was no notice of a water leak in her bathroom ceiling.
Despite this, the case was ultimately resolved by HKD partner Judd F. Kleeger for $2,000,000 prior to trial.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
