Personal Injury- $2.5 Million Jury Verdict


The Finkel Law Firm wins a major jury verdict in a premises liability case.*

Slip and Fall
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.
