A plaintiff from Atlanta recently settled a premises liability lawsuit for $475,000 after he sustained injuries from a fall at a national car wash company. The plaintiff worked for a company that supplied products to the car wash, and while at a service call, he fell though a fiberglass flooring grates in the car wash tunnel. The cuts became infected from chemicals and contamination in the runoff water, which resulted in several painful medical procedures. The plaintiff also suffered permanent disfigurement. His claim asserted that the car wash company failed to provide a safe working environment by having undetectable gaps in the fiberglass flooring grates. He claims this dangerous condition could have been easily remedied with minimal expense, thus the car wash should have ensured worker’s safety.
