Six Figure Slip and Fall Settlement

In this premises liability case, our client fell on an uneven ledge at a courthouse. The accident resulted in broken bones in her leg and arm.
Our client was a witness at a hearing at an Ohio courthouse. When she was waiting outside of the court to testify, she fell off of an unprotected ledge near the doorway, breaking her shoulder and leg.
The personal injury attorneys at Tittle & Perlmuter filed suit against the county which owned the courthouse premises. The county attempted to have the case dismissed on sovereign immunity grounds, which the trial court rejected. The county immediately took the case to the court of appeals, and we won the appeal. When the case was sent back to the trial court, the county finally agreed to resolve it in the six-figures.
