Lila F. v. Festival Flea Market Vendor
$230,000 settlement, hip fracture, slip and fall, open reduction and internal fixation, Pompano Beach, Florida
Lila F. was injured when she slipped and fell in a bakery at the Festival Flea Market in Pompano Beach, Florida breaking her hip. She slipped on a combination of flour, water and dirt on the bakery floor where she was assisting an employee.
The defendant took the position that Lila F. was not entitled to benefits because she was in employee at the bakery even though she never received a paycheck alleging worker’s compensation immunity.
Sam Coffey was able to establish that Lila F. was not in employee of the bakery and that the bakery was responsible for injuries because they did not keep their floor clean. The insurer for the bakery offered Lila F. $230,000 to settle her case.
