Slip & Fall

Our client was doing laundry in her apartment building in Washington, DC. She put her laundry in the washing machines and went back to her apartment. When she went back to transfer her laundry to the dryers, all three washing machines had leaked, and water spread out of the laundry room and onto the stairway that led to the elevator. Our client saw the water and tried to proceed cautiously, but as she descended the stairs she slipped and fell. As a result of her fall, she fractured her right ankle in three places.We filed suit in D.C. Superior Court against the owner of the building and the management company. The defendants claimed that our client was at fault because she attempted to walk through the water. However, after extensive discovery, we were able to settle the case for $150,000.00 prior to trial.
