Flooring Company Sued in Slip-And-Fall Accident

Be careful where you are walking! A Philly-area school was sued by a former high school administrator for a slip-and-fall injury.  The story, which can be found here, summarized the injuries the woman sustained when she slipped on wet flooring glue at her school in North Philadelphia, PA.  Soon before the woman's accident, a flooring company had been contracted to install new floors in the school where she worked.  According to the article "the Wargo employee did not tell her about the transparent and slippery coating of adhesive that had been applied to the floor minutes before. Suddenly, her feet flew out from under her and she landed hard on her back."  when she was helping the flooring company open doors into the school.  The administrator sustained significant nerve damage which required her to use a cane to walk.  She was eventually diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome, and now requires the help of her spouse and friends consistently throughout the day.  The flooring company settled before the case went to trial.
If you have slipped and fell on the property of another, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills and potential pain and suffering.  This may include cases where sidewalks were improperly maintained due to the weather, such as failure to remove snow and ice.   Attorney Doug Stoehr takes cases for clients who have sustained slip-and-fall injuries due to the fault or negligence of another.  For more information on his Altoona, PA area practice, please visit his website at http://www.stoehrlaw.com or call his firm at 814-946-4100.
