Jeff Rowe and Brennan Delaney Obtain $590,000 Judgment in Slip and Fall Case

By September 23, 2013September 30th, 2019Client Results

On May 17, 2013, attorneys Jeff Rowe and Brennan Delaney obtained a $ 5.9 million verdict,
resulting in a $590,000 judgment for their client.  The lawsuit alleged that the defendant,
an after-school daycare program, negligently caused a tile floor to become wet and slippery.
As a result, plaintiff – a six year-old boy enrolled in the daycare program – slipped and
fell to the floor.  The fall caused the boy’s left tibia to fracture, and the bone never healed.
He suffered numerous additional fractures to the same bone in the years following the initial
fracture and underwent multiple corrective surgeries.  But after nearly nine years, he was
forced to undergo a below-knee amputation of his left leg.

The Court’s ruling that allowed apportionment of fault to the plaintiff – resulting in reduction
of the verdict – is being appealed and, if successful, could result in a judgment for the
entire verdict amount.
