$500,000 Settlement in Slip and Fall Case at a Retail Store

January 29, 2021

Romanucci & Blandin, LLC, a national litigation firm primarily based in Chicago, announces a $500,000 settlement of a lawsuit involving a slip and fall at a Chicago-area retail store that occurred in September of 2017. The Plaintiff slipped and fell on a water spot on the floor at the retail store next to a display stand and broke her leg. The retail store had no warning or caution signs around the spill that occurred shortly before the Plaintiff walked past the stand.  The plaintiff needed surgery, injections and physical therapy following the fracture to her left leg. 

Defendant argued that Plaintiff was contributory negligent as she was wearing flip flops, holding a coffee and was not paying attention to where she was walking.

The case was resolved on January 18, 2021, while pending in Federal Court - Northern District of Illinois.  

The Plaintiff was also represented by Romanucci & Blandin, LLC.
