    Premises Liability

    Our attorneys recently obtained $285,000 for a Jacksonville woman who slipped on ice at a gas station and fractured her right arm. The key to the successful outcome was uncovering the identity of an independent witness from the audio recording of the 911 phone call made from the scene.

    The independent witness was able to establish that the ice that caused the fall was an unnatural accumulation that formed from water dripping off the convenience store’s awning and pooling near the store’s entranceway.

    Premises Liability

    Our attorneys obtained a $195,000 settlement for an 84-year-old man who sustained a closed head injury after tripping over a bed display platform at a department store. The elderly man did not see the display platform because it was obscured by a flared out bedspread and he was focused on the cash register that was a few feet away. The defendant originally denied responsibility and claimed that the display platform was open and obvious. The defendant settled after Woodruff Johnson & Evans Law Offices attorneys demonstrated that the hidden display platform violated the department store’s own safety policies. In addition, our attorneys unearthed hundreds of other incidents where customers and employees tripped over display platforms.
