Another Stairwell Case – More Bad Lighting
ZR is a sweet, elderly lady who enjoyed visiting her friends. One day, she visited her friend who lived in an apartment complex in West Kendall. After visiting for several hours, ZR decided to go home. It was dark outside. As she was descending the staircase, it was dark. She missed her step and fell, breaking her ankle. The Weber Law Firm inspected the lighting system and discovered that it was never adjusted for day light savings time. As a result, the lights did not turn on until well after it had become dark. Of course, the owner and its maintenance company negligently failed to adjust the timer system and were responsible for ZR’s full measure of damages.
