$225,000.00 SETTLEMENT  Dangerous Premises Case

$225,000.00 SETTLEMENT  Dangerous Premises Case. A 78 year-old woman visiting the Villagio Inn suffered a fracture to her knee when she fell while leaving the business center of the property. Her fall was caused by a single step which was unmarked and had no handrail. Construction and engineering standards suggest that short flights of steps should be avoided or made visible by applying a marking strip of contrasting color on the leading edge of the step. During the deposition of the general manager of the property, the general manager admitted that Villagio did not place a warning strip on the step because it would have been unattractive. The personal injury lawyers at Rahman Law PC were able to secure a settlement prior to trial.
