- John Ringelstein v. Naples Courtyard Inn
Obtained a defense verdict in a premises liability personal injury lawsuit involving a slip and fall at a Naples hotel. The hotel was sued under allegations that it allowed a dangerous condition to exist on an exterior staircase on which the Plaintiff alleged that he slipped and fell. Plaintiff was an out-of-town guest who claimed that the hotel’s air conditioning units were leaking water out onto the exterior walkway which then made its way onto the staircase resulting in algae and mold developing on the steps over time. Defendant denied that any such condition existed on the steps or the walkway.
- Benigna Boyle v. Target
Plaintiff was a customer at the Defendant’s store and was in the health and beauty supply aisle looking for a cosmetic bag when she was struck by a box of merchandise on a flatbed cart that she alleged was left unattended by Defendant’s employees. Defendant denied that the store’s practice was dangerous or that the cart was unattended since the video showed two employees at or around the cart while the Plaintiff was shopping.
As a result of the event, Plaintiff suffered a vertebral fracture to her lumbar spine that required a kyphoplasty at the emergency room. She also subsequently alleged a neck fracture for which she minimally treated. Defendant contended that she obtained an excellent result from the procedure and that there was no need for any type of ongoing medical care or treatment in the future. The Plaintiff asked the jury to award $716,000.00 at the close of trial. The defense argued that there was no evidence of any fault against Defendant. The jury deliberated for about two hours before returning its defense verdict.
- Karen Jones v. Freedland Moore, Inc. d/b/a Harbor Nissan
Obtained a defense verdict in a premises liability case tried over 4 days in Charlotte County, Florida. Plaintiff alleged that the dealership allowed a dangerous condition consisting of an unidentified liquid to exist in the service area where customers would routinely drop off their vehicles for service. Defendant contended that it had a well-established set of policies and procedures in place for patrolling, inspecting, and maintaining the service area free and clear of any potential slip or trip hazards. The jury deliberated for less than 90 minutes before rendering its verdict of no liability against the Defendant.
