Slip and Fall

While exiting an elevator in the Department of Treasury building where she worked, our client slipped and fell on a slippery substance. A security guard nearby told our client that the cleaning company for the building had recently mopped the area where our client fell. There were no wet floor or caution signs advising our client of the dangerously slippery floor. As a result of falling, our client injured her left wrist, right hip, and middle back. She required extensive medical care and endured a long recovery period. Defendants expert opined that her injuries were exaggerated and the vast majority of her treatment and lost wages were excessive and not related to the incident. We filed a lawsuit and the parties agreed to a binding arbitration. The arbitrator issued an award of $387,500.
