Case Results

$312,500.00 (Trip and Fall)

$312,500 Recovered for Disabled Elderly Woman In this case, the Kohn Law Office represented a 71 year old disabled woman who was injured on December 10, 2008 after leaving a restaurant in San Marcos, California. As she walked to her relative's vehicle, which was parked in one of the handicapped spaces due to her rheumatoid arthritis disability, she walked between their vehicle and another vehicle parked in the adjacent handicapped space. It was dark, there was only a short gap between the cars, and she tripped and fell over a wheel stop in the handicapped parking space. She suffered a fractured femoral neck of her right hip. Her medical damages paid by her Medicare advantage plan were about $30,000. She made a very good recovery and will not require future medical care. There were several problems with the parking spaces where the fall occurred, including the negligent layout of the handicapped parking spaces in that they omitted a necessary access aisle between the spaces in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines, the wheel stop was unnecessary due to a bollard already present and in any event was placed too close to the parking space line, and the nighttime lighting in the area was insufficient. This case required a significant amount of litigation and two all day mediations in order to achieve the recovery of $312,500 for our client.
