MIAMI DADE COUNTY – A 69-year-old man was walking outside a shopping plaza when he wandered onto a freshly painted sidewalk. He slipped and fell on the wet paint, and was immediately transported to a nearby hospital. His severe injuries warranted him needing several healthcare providers.
By the end of treatment, he sustained a traumatic brain injury. Additionally in terms of physical ailments, he dealt with neck, back, shoulder, and wrist issues. Because of this, the plaintiff hired attorneys, Vinas & DeLuca. They argued that the defendants were negligent in not properly blocking off the sidewalk. Consequently they said these lead to the plaintiff’s injuries, pain, suffering, and impairments.
The defendants, however, were not convinced. Indeed, he defendants argued that the plaintiff could clearly see the paint was wet and dangerous. And according to them, the plaintiff was comparatively at fault, therefore, they weren’t liable.
The two sides were at a standstill and could not find a common ground. For this reason, they were in litigation for nearly a year. Surveillance footage was brought in, and arguments were presented. But in the end, the courts found the defendant liable, and awarded the plaintiff $1,875,000.
