CSK Receives Complete Defense Verdict in Trip-and-Fall Case

December 15, 2012

Vincent Gannuscio of Cole, Scott & Kissane’s Tampa office obtained a complete defense verdict this trip-and-fall case. The Plaintiff, a guest at the Summer Bay Resort in Clermont, claimed that he tripped on garbage that had negligently been allowed to accumulate in a stairwell late at night, fracturing his ankle. The defense focused on several misstatements by Plaintiff as to the time the accident occurred, how the accident occurred, and his own alcohol consumption, as well as the lack of evidence as to any notice or other reasonable basis for Summer Bay to have been inspecting the stairwell late at night. The jury found in favor of the Defendant on all issues after less than an hour of deliberation.Gannuscio_web
