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

Posted on: January 29th, 2021 by Romanucci & Blandin

CHICAGO (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 did not have any warning or caution signs around the spill that occurred shortly before the Plaintiff walked past the stand.  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 by Associate Attorney Michael R. Grieco. The case was pending in Federal Court – Northern District of Illinois.  

This retail store failed to follow their own display stand set-up protocol that would have prevented my client’s fall.  Instead, their negligence caused my client to fracture her leg which led to a painful surgery and months of rehabilitation,” said Michael R. Grieco, Associate Attorney at Romanucci & Blandin, LLC.

The Plaintiff was also represented by Vincent J. Arrigo, Associate Attorney at Romanucci & Blandin, LLC.
