$184,000 Trip and Fall Verdict for Attorney Getson
October 17th, 2011 by Wapner Newman
The plaintiff, 60 years old at the time of her fall, sustained left knee medial and lateral meniscus tears and a medial femoral condyle fracture requiring multiple injections and surgical repair and a left shoulder full thickness rotator cuff tear requiring multiple injections as a result of the trip and fall within the defendant’s premises. Attorney Getson successfully argued that the defendant had a duty to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition for its contemplated use and the purpose for which the invitation was extended to the plaintiff and therefore should be responsible for the damages sustained by the plaintiff.
Attorney Getson joined Wapner, Newman, Wigrizer & Brecher as an Associate in April 2004 and focuses his practice in Plaintiffs’ Civil Trial Litigation.
