Las Vegas personal injury lawyer, Donald C. Kudler, of the law firm Cap & Kudler, has settled a case on behalf of his client who was a victim of a slip and fall personal injury accident. The client was leaving work and walking out of the hallway to enter the parking garage when she slipped on a unmarked wet spot after the floor was mopped.
The client was transported by ambulance immediately to Sunrise Hospital. She suffered injuries to her knees, left wrist, hand and elbow as well as a fractured right foot. In addition to the testing she received at the hospital, the client received care for the personal injuries caused by the slip and fall accident, Abdi Raissi, M.D., of Desert Orthopedic Center performed surgery on the client’s fractured right foot. Following the surgery, the client was fitted with an Ambulatory Boot and Post-Op show by Orthopedic Motion, Inc. Over time, the fracture healed and our client had a decent recovery.
Proving Liability in Slip and Fall Cases
It is often difficult to prove liability in slip and fall cases. Fortunately, our client’s medical care was covered by her health insurance policy which means that she would not be on the hook for medical bills should we have been unable to settle the case. We were able to settle this claim and provide our client with fair compensation without the risk of losing at Trial should we not be able to prove that the building owner was responsible for the client’s injuries. Donald Kudler, says “This is one of those cases where a person’s injury could have been avoided. As an expert has said to me, once a building owner or occupier is on notice of a dangerous condition, they have three options: fix it, warn about it, or block off access to it. Int his case none of this was accomplished before our client was the unfortunate victim of an injury accident.”
