A California woman has been awarded nearly $415,000 in her slip and fall lawsuit against Costco. In April 2009, the 58 year-old woman fell on liquid soap and shattered her knee cap.
According to her lawyer, Costco employees passed by the spilled soap but failed to follow protocol and clean it up. Moments later, his client fell and sustained injuries that will forever limit her mobility and function of her leg. The woman has under gone one surgery to wire her knee back together and more may be needed.
The jury awarded $90,000 to her past and future medical expenses and nearly $350,000 for her past and future pain and suffering.
