Slip and Fall in Parking Lot Results in Award of $390,000

Comments Off

Robert Yusem slipped on ice in a parking lot in a Pennsylvania industrial park in 2000, and suffered serious injuries, including fractures of his elbow, arm and ankle. It’s taken seven years, but a jury recently awarded Yusems and his wife $390,000 in damages based on a claim of premises liabilty. In his “slip and fall” lawsuit, Yusems argued that the defendant parking-lot owner carelessly allowed water from rain spouts to drain onto the parking lot and driveway, and allowied ice and snow to build up, creating a hazard. The jury obviously agreed.
