Our client fell while shopping in a grocery store. The grocery store initially paid for our client’s medical treatment. But, when it became obvious he was seriously injured and required surgery, the store denied responsibility and refused to pay for further medical care. Fortunately, he hired CMZ. We filed suit and obtained the store surveillance video. Approximately 2 minutes before he fell, the video captured an employee walking by the slippery substance and doing nothing about it. The store’s Vice President of Risk Management had to admit in front of the jury the employee violated company policy and general safety standards when she ignored the substance on the floor. The jury found the store liable and awarded all the costs of his surgery as well as his lost wages. Most personal injury attorneys won’t handle premises liability cases. They are called “slip and fall” cases and the insurance industry has convinced most jurors these claims are bogus. But, at CMZ, we aren’t afraid to take on insurance companies or businesses when they don’t maintain a safe premises like the law requires.
