$1.5 Million Jury Award for Failure to Warn
Our client, a 69-year-old man, was at a home, installing automated window coverings. As he was leaving the house, he fell down a flight of stairs and suffered a traumatic brain injury. Our investigation showed that the location of the stairs in relation to the door through which he attempted to leave constituted an unreasonably dangerous condition that the homeowner, through the use of reasonable care, should have known about and protected against. Five years later, a jury awarded the client a $1.5 million verdict against defendant homeowner for failure to warn or protect.
