Defense Verdict in Theme Park Slip-and-Fall

Obtained a defense verdict in favor of a major Orlando theme park following a seven-day jury trial. The plaintiff alleged that he slipped and fell on the handle of an unattended dustpan in the bathroom of a park pavilion. He was subsequently diagnosed with avascular necrosis of the right hip, permanent back pain, and memory problems from post-concussion syndrome. A core decompression surgery was performed on his right hip but failed to alleviate his pain. The plaintiff sought compensation for lost wages and loss of earning capacity for the remainder of his life, as well as past and future medical expenses, including two future hip replacement surgeries. During closing arguments, the plaintiff and his wife requested an award in excess of $1.2 million. The defense relied on the lack of credibility of the plaintiff and the plaintiff’s experts. After nearly five hours of deliberation, the jury returned a defense verdict.
