Trip and Fall Results in $150,000 Settlement

Clawson Fargnoli recently settled a trip and fall case for $150,000. The names of the parties and the venue of the case must remain confidential per the terms of the settlement agreement. Our client tripped and fell on a ramp inside a building, resulting in a complex fracture of her wrist and two surgeries. We filed suit against both the owner (landlord) and occupier (tenant) of the building alleging premises liability. Our expert witness in the areas of engineering and human factors opined that the ramp was in violation of numerous building codes and industry standards because of its excessive slope. We mediated the case and were successful in resolving it, despite the fact that the most culpable party did not have liability insurance for the loss and had to pay with personal funds. Think of Clawson Fargnoli for life altering personal injury and death cases across the state, including trip and fall cases.
