Belvidere Restaurant Liable for Slip and Fall

Comments Off

A man that fell in a Belvidere restaurant was awarded $1 Million by a jury after finding the restaurant liable. The slip and fall lawsuit hinged on the fact that the floor in the restaurant was wet and there was no caution sign in place.

Daniels broke his arm in several places and says he might require additional surgeries. He has osteogenesis imperfecta, a disease that makes him more susceptible to fractures or easy cracking of the bone. He walked with the help of crutches at the time of the fall, but has since been in a wheelchair since his fractured arm can no longer support a crutch, he said.

The man’s wife was also awarded $75,000 in the trial. The owner of the restaurant has not decided if he will appeal the ruling.
