Serious Injuries Caused By Hole in the Parking Lot
Summary: As part of a construction project, a landlord dug deep holes into an active public parking lot and left them open. Unfortunately, the wind blew a large piece of cardboard over the hole and when our client stepped on the cardboard he fell into the hole, fracturing his leg. The defendant refused to accept responsibility for our client’s injuries and damages. However, after two (2) days of trial, including a withering cross-examination of the landlord, the trial judge ordered the parties to a mid-trial mediation. At mediation, the case was resolved.
