Court holds store not liable for slip and fall on paper
Plaintiff slipped and fell on a piece of paper on the floor of defendant store’s produce department. Plaintiff suffered a torn rotator cuff with approximately $42,000 in medical bills. Plaintiff’s demand was $400,000. In defendant’s motion for summary judgment, Attorney Michael Radak argued that there was no evidence that the store caused the paper to be on the floor, nor did it have actual or constructive notice of its presence. Summary judgment was entered in favor of defendant and upheld on appeal.
