Adam Brum of Morgan and Morgan’s Tampa office has achieved a $870,467.60 premises liability verdict on behalf of a client who slipped and fell on a wet floor at a Kash N Karry in Tampa. A Hillsborough County jury awarded the client $17,247.60 for past medical bills, $155,720 for future medical expenses, as well as $697,000 for past and future pain and suffering damages.
The client in this slip and fall case entered the Kash N Karry in the early morning. The floors had just been washed; however, the cleaning crew neglected to dry the area where the client was walking. Consequently, the client slipped and fell, aggravating a pre-existing back injury. To treat the slip and fall injury, the client increased his pain medication and underwent a fusion, which was performed at three levels. The surgeon who performed the fusion claimed that only one level was related to the slip and fall accident; the other back injuries were part of a pre-existing condition.
If you were injured in a slip and fall accident, you have valuable legal rights which may make you eligible for financial compensation. Slip and fall accident victims may be able to recover compensation from the property owner to pay for medical bills, cover lost wages and compensate for pain and suffering.
