Hotel Guest Wins $1,155,806 for Slip and Fall Near Ice Machine

Hotels and motels are responsible to make sure their floors, tubs and showers are reasonably slip resistant. Here’s a slip and fall suit that resulted in a $1.1 million dollar court award to the claimant.

She was 29 years old and had 3 kids. She was a deli manager and pregnant.

She argued that the hotel should’ve had carpet or a mat near the ice machine, or that the floor should’ve been slip resistant.

Her attorney hired a hospitality expert, who likely said that the floor should’ve had carpet or mats or been slip resistant. Her lawyer also hired an engineer, George Zimmerman, who may have testified as to slip resistance.

It may cost $500 or more to hire a hospitality expert to give an opinion on whether he/she feels that hotel was negligent http://www.justinziegler.net/negligence-personal-injury-case. An expert like the engineer used in this case usually requires an initial fee of $1,200 or so.

She was pregnant at the time of her fall. She mostly complained of low back injuries http://www.justinziegler.net/back-injury-claims-slip-falls-florida-cruises

An ambulance took her to the emergency room http://www.justinziegler.net/effect-of-not-taking-an-ambulance-to-the-hospital-following-an-accident . This helped her case.

She was seen at the ER, and was instructed to see her doctor. She continued getting medical treatment for her lower back injury.

She then had another slip and fall at someone’s house. The hotel argued that this new slip and fall caused her new back injury.

She said that this 2nd slip and fall was caused due to her difficulty walking from the first slip and fall. When you have a 2nd accident, it can make it tougher to prove that the first accident caused your injury www.justinziegler.net/subsequent-accident-injury-case-florida.

She also had gaps in her medical treatment http://www.justinziegler.net/gaps-medical-treatment-affect-personal-injury-case/. In total, she had about 17 injections, which included facet blocks, sacroiliac injections, and epidurals.

The breakdown of the $1,155,806 jury verdict is:

The verdict was on November 3, 2014.

The case is Nickesha Johnson vs. Tamarac Hotels, Inc. d/b/a Mainstay Suits and d/b/a Comfort Suites, and Choice Hotels International.
