Woman Snaps Ankle From Fall On Wet Floor

$60,000

Litigation Type - Slip, Trip and Fall

Client Injury - Broken Ankle

Our female client entered a well-known area grocery store on a rainy summer evening. As she stepped off of the entry-way mat, she slipped on the polished floor that had become damp from that day's 3,000-plus shoppers. The client suffered a badly broken ankle resulting in medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost time from work. The store denied any responsibility for the accident. However, Bill Bongard proved that the store had violated its own policies for wet floors including not having fans or warning signs in the area. Bill was able to settle the case for $60,000.
