The Finkel Law Firm wins a major jury verdict in a premises liability case.*
Foreign substances on walkways can pose serious danger to personal safety.
In September 2015, Attorneys Bill Padget and Brink Hinson obtained a $2.5
million jury verdict against a local hospital in a case involving a foreign
substance on the floor that caused a physician to suffer a serious fall
and a debilitating leg injury.
The Defendant hospital denied responsibility and even denied the existence
of the foreign substance on the floor that caused the fall. After a thorough
investigation by firm attorneys, the dangerous condition was proven by
the testimony of numerous witnesses at trial. Moreover, with some powerful
circumstantial evidence, the jury was able to conclude that the Defendant
hospital’s employees likely created the dangerous condition that
led to the fall. Prior to trial the hospital offered very little compensation
to the plaintiff to resolve the case. The jury returned the multimillion
verdict after a 4 day trial.
