Our client slipped on water leaking from an ice machine as she walked along a common area walkway to a retail store. She suffered a severe foot injury requiring two surgeries. Our client sued the owner of the retail shopping mall since the accident occurred in a common area of the center. She also sued the owner of the ice machine and the retail store associated with the ice machine. The defendants claimed that our client was distracted and failed to notice the water. We claimed that the defendants failed to warn our client, a customer, of the wet conditions. Each side blamed the other and extended the litigation in this matter. We were ultimately able to settle this case for $300,000.00.
