Settlement for Slip and Fall on Spilled Water in East County Store
Attorney Howard Kitay obtained a $175,000.00 settlement for an El Cajon woman who slipped and fell on water while shopping at a local store. Store employees failed to clean up water on the floor, and Plaintiff walked down the aisle, slipped and fell. Plaintiff sustained an aggravation of pre-existing arthritis to her knees. Her medical bills totaled $47,812.62.
Attorney Howard Kitay filed suit in San Diego Superior Court. The store insisted it had no legal notice of the spilled water. Attorney Howard Alan Kitay proved that several employees walked past the water and failed to clean it up, thereby permitting a dangerous condition that injured Plaintiff. The store eventually settled the case for $175,000.00.
