POSTED SEPTEMBER 30, 2022
Wicker Smith Miami partner Jaime Baca and associate Danielle Carlsen were awarded a complete defense verdict in September while representing a major retailer in a slip and fall case. The plaintiff alleged to have incurred five different herniated disks from a forward fall onto her knee and arm, ultimately undergoing a 2-level lumbar fusion, several injections, and a right shoulder arthroscopy. Plaintiff had $280,000 in past medical bills and asked the jury for a total of $1.175 million. Both liability and causation were contested resulting in the jury finding no negligence on behalf of the defendant and awarding the firm’s client a complete defense verdict.
