Moto Mart slip and fall case settled
Posted on January 21st, 2010 by Zane Cagle
A hotly contested premises liability suit filed against a Moto Mart in Edwardsville finally settled last week, with the plaintiff’s receiving just under $390,000.
The plaintiff alleged he was was seriously injured when he slipped and fell on the defendant’s premises. His attorney asked the jury to award more than $2 million to the plaintiffs, but the judge ultimately directed the verdict before it could be decided on by jurors.
The settlement comes after much wrangling between the opposing counsels, and even an imposition of sanctions against the defendant for its conduct during discovery.
