$275k Trip and Fall in Restaurant Settlement
After having lunch with her family, Ms. C. Ventura went to leave out the front door of the restaurant. A dangerous, camouflaged, hidden step at the door caused her to trip and fall, fracturing her ankle. As a result, she needed surgery to repair the ankle.
The defendant restaurant continually denied any responsibility, but after several strong depositions and motions to the court, the defendants were precluded from offering any evidence in their defense at trial.
