Partner, firm attorney, recovers $200,000 for slip and fall.

Partner, firm attorney, recovers $200,000.00 for an 82-year-old woman who slipped and fell at a Hallandale Beach, Broward County, condominium suffering a broken femur.  Defendants included the condominium association, it’s cleaning company and security company. The accident was captured on surveillance video and it was clearly proven that a cleaning person had mopped the area moments before the accident and failed to either rope off the wet area of the floor or warn the plaintiff about the hidden danger.  This lawsuit settled just before trial.  firm attorney stated, “the condominium association actually had the nerve to point the finger at and blame its own cleaning contractor and security vendor for failing to maintain its own premises in a reasonably safe condition rather than admit fault.  The condominium took the position that it didn’t control its own lobby and that it did not have any employees therefore it could not be at fault. However, Florida law clearly holds that the condominium had a non-delegable duty to maintain its property in a reasonably safe condition and to warn of dangers on its property.  Through blaming its own contractors the condominium actually had unknowingly admitted fault.”  Settlement date March 7, 2013.
