Dental assistant awarded $1.47 million in slip-and-fall incident

Employers in California and all other states have a legal responsibility to provide a safe working environment for all their employees, regardless of the type of business. Unfortunately, some business owners neglect to ensure that all safety measures are in place and properly maintained, and as a result, sometimes workers suffer serious injuries. Such was the case for a woman in another state who was recently awarded $1.47 million following a slip-and-fall incident at her workplace that resulted in an irreparable back injury.

The incident happened in Sept. 2014. The 55-year-old woman had been working as a dental assistant when she slipped on water leaking from a sprinkler system in the office at which she works, causing a back injury. She endured several surgeries while attempting to repair the injury, but apparently, doctors were not able to fix the issue.

In 2018, she filed the lawsuit against several entities involved in the incident, including the property owner for the medical center at which she worked. Following a recent eight-day trial, the jury returned the verdict in favor of the woman. According to her attorneys, she has lost the ability to work.

Employees have the right to expect a workspace in which they can carry out their duties without worrying about unexpected incidents like this one. However, unfortunately, some people do encounter unsafe work conditions that may lead to an injury with lifelong consequences, as this woman has. In the state of California, people who have endured serious injuries that seem to have resulted from an employer's or property owner's negligent behavior may consider contacting a personal injury lawyer to discuss legal options.
