Jeffrey Newby Wins Healthcare Agency Slip and Fall Case

    Successfully tried a case for a healthcare agency where an employee alleged sustaining a low back injury when leaving a client's home. She slipped and fell on ice. The claim was dismissed with prejudice following the presentation of four witnesses. We were able to convince the judge that in contrast to the employee’s allegations, she was not going to her car in order to retrieve a timesheet. Had the judge believed that fact issue, the trip to the car may have been deemed work-related. Using her recorded statement and other documentation including fact witness testimony, the case was dismissed and saved the employer in the range of $100,000 in wage loss, medical bills as well as an award of permanent disability.
