Premises Liability

We represented a Tennessee woman who slipped and fell in a motel parking lot in Marion, Virginia. She slipped on ice that had refrozen at night after snow had melted during the day. She fractured her wrist and had a subdural hematoma and hemorrhage, which required three brain surgeries. However, she did not seek medical treatment for three days after the accident. Moreover, in her initial medical visit following the accident, she did not mention any head injury. There were also significant liability issues because no one witnessed her fall and although she claimed she reported the fall, there was no record of the fall being reported. Finally, there had been a significant snow storm before her fall and it was not obvious that the parking lot could have been cleaned any better. After several months of litigation, we obtained a settlement of $425,000.00.
