Fall on Wet Tiles Result in Permanent Injuries
Our client was attending races at a local racetrack and left his clubhouse seat to use the restroom. He uses an electric scooter and once inside the restroom, parked the scooter near the handicapped stall, got off and slipped on liquid on the floor. He landed on the tile floor. He was taken by ambulance to the hospital and spent 6 weeks in a rehab center.
Jeffrey Sieben was hired to represent our client in a claim against the racetrack. He retained an expert in restroom design and regulations. Through a careful inspection it was determined that the restroom where our client slipped was not adequately appointed with hand holding system to guard against such falls.
Sieben resolved the claim prior to trial for $100,000.
