Case Conclusion Date: March 26, 2014
Practice Area: Slip and Fall Accident
Description: My client injured her lower back while stepping into a raised hot tub at Tiger Run Resort in Breckenridge, CO. We obtained surveillance video of her fall. After having an expert review the scene, we claimed that the regulations governing hot tubs required a handrail going into the hot tub, and that the handrail would have prevented or reduced the victim’s injury. Despite my client’s good recovery following back surgery, we claimed lost wages, past and future, as she was unable to return to her strenuous job at US Airways. These damages were evaluated by an economist. The case settled at mediation.
