Veteran personal injury attorneys say that last week’s jury verdict — which awarded $3 million to a woman after she tripped on a downed “wet floor” sign at Ohio’s Jack Cincinnati Casino — provides a reminder for all gaming venue officials about slip and fall risks.
Lynda Sadowski suffered a broken kneecap in the 2016 incident, the Washington Examiner reported. A metal plate was later inserted in her leg and she may need further surgery.
A video released by the casino showed an employee walked past the sign 11 seconds before the patron fell on it, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported based on statements from the victim’s attorneys. Apparently, the employee did not address the risk immediately.
