Premises Liability - Trip and Fall Injury
Bryce Moses’ client was a 60-year-old man who walked with crutches due to Polio. The only handicap accessible entrance to his building was through the basement. As he was coming home from work, he tripped over the broken concrete at the basement entrance. He lay there for an hour before his wife found him. He was taken to the hospital in an ambulance. He underwent surgery and remained hospitalized for two weeks. He was in physical therapy for two years but never regained the use of his crutches and is now wheelchair bound.
We filed a suit against the building landlord for safety violations. After deliberating for half an hour, the jury awarded our client $1.3 million for past and future pain and suffering.
