PWD Recovers $350,000 for Man Who Slips on Defective Entryway

Mr. C rented a duplex in Miami.  Mr. C broke his ankle when, before the morning dew had evaporated, he slipped on an outdoor entryway leading into the home.  Mr. C required emergency surgery.

Years before Mr. C even rented the property, the landlord placed tile on the entryway that was not suitable for outdoor use.  It was too slippery and it violated Miami-Dade County Code on outdoor “coefficient of friction”  standards.  Skip Pita was lead counsel on the case.  The landlord’s deposition revealed that the landlord had used tape and other devices in an effort to make the entryway safer.  Further investigation led to the Homeowners Assoc.’s  by-laws.   Depositions of the  Homeowner Assoc. president, when confronted with the by-laws, revealed that the entryway was a common area.  Accordingly, the Homeowners Assoc., along with the property manager, had ultimate responsibility for allowing this entryway  to be tiled and for allowing a known, dangerous condition to continue on for years.  PWD recovered $350,000for Mr. C.

 

PWD is honored to have represented Mr. C, to have discovered the truth, and to have uncovered all responsible actors at this property.
