Premises Liability (Trip and Fall)
Our elderly client was walking through the parking lot of a strip mall, when he tripped over a sprinkler head placed in the tile of the walkway. Our client suffered a fractured elbow, and later developed complex regional pain syndrome. The property owner and property management company denied liability claiming our client was not paying attention, the condition was open and obvious, and our client was not even sure what he tripped on. Our client was offered nothing prior to retaining FARAR & LEWIS. At mediation, FARAR & LEWIS was able to secure him $800,000.00.
