CSK Obtains Complete Defense Verdict in a $1.2M Trip and Fall in Miami-Dade

October 11, 2019

CSK Partners Ben Fernandez and David Herrero of the Miami Office obtained a complete defense verdict in a trip and fall case in Miami-Dade. Plaintiff was a very likeable, middle-aged female attorney who tripped and fell over a parking wheelstop inside our client’s retail parking garage. Plaintiff argued through their expert that the wheelstop was a concealed danger due to insufficient lighting and insufficient contrast from the garage floor, and that it was considered an obstruction within a foreseeable means of egress.  Plaintiff sustained complex fractures to her foot and ankle which required surgery and left her with only 25% mobility in her foot. Plaintiff asked the jury for $1.2M and after 3 hours, the jury returned a complete defense verdict.
