Six Figure Settlement in Slip and Fall Case

Attorney James Sabatini obtained a six figure settlement on behalf of his client in a slip and fall case.  The case involved a big box store located in Connecticut.  Our client was walking in an aisle when she fell due to a foreign and slippery substance on the floor.  Through investigation, Attorney Sabatini discovered that the substance on the floor came from customers sampling a chemical spray product.  Customers were regularly spraying the product in the air resulting in the product accumulating on the floor. Due to the nature of the chemical substance, the daily mopping of the floor with soap and water did not remove the substance.  It was discovered during the litigation, that the store actually had a cleaning product on site to remove the substance from the floor, but the store manager was not even aware of the cleaning product’s existence.  Thus, the cleaning product was never used and the floor was remained slippery.  The client suffered an elbow injury which required surgery.
