Slip and Fall on Chicken Wing Juice – Boynton Beach
On June 1, 2007, our client, Jane Doe, was dining at a Sports Bar/Restaurant in Boynton Beach, Florida. When she first arrived with her family, Jane Doe observed a waitress drop a plate full of chicken wings on the concrete floor. A restaurant cleaning crew quickly cleaned the area and Jane Doe thought nothing more of it.
That is until Jane Doe got up to go to the bathroom. As she walked through the area nearby the spill, she suddenly slipped and fell, landing on her knee and breaking her knee cap. As a result, Jane Doe required surgery.
The Sports Bar/Restaurant’s insurance company denied the claim arguing that Jane Doe knew about the dropped chicken wings and should have been more cautious as she walked across the floor.
Shortly after the denial, the Weber Law firm filed suit on Jane Doe’s behalf in Palm Beach County. Within a few months, the case was set for trial and the parties were ordered to mediate the case. At mediation – less than 1 year after the incident and on the eve of trial, the Sports Bar/Restaurant paid Jane Doe $250,000.00 to settle her claim.
