$450,000 Settlement for Slip and Fall Victim

October 21st, 2011 by Wapner Newman

Slip and fall attorney in Philadelphia, David Sternberg settled a slip and fall case on behalf of an elderly woman who fell on a slippery coffee shop floor. After purchasing her coffee, the woman slipped in a puddle of liquid creamer and fractured her leg. The investigation confirmed that store employees routinely neglected to mop and sweep the area where the fall occurred and that they failed to take the necessary safety precautions even though they were aware of the dangerous conditions that their negligence had created. Had they taken the proper corrective steps or properly warned their customers, the injury would not have occurred. Attorney Sternberg was able to obtain $450,000 for the slip and fall victim.
