Much has been written lamenting modern America’s turn towards becoming a litigious society, with citizens suing other citizens for minor infractions at the drop of a hat. While abuse of the legal system can be a problem, an even bigger issue hidden by this stigma is the unceasing efforts of monied institutions to absolve themselves of any legal liability for injuries incurred on their premises.
Years ago, a client of mine was touring a wedding venue that his daughter was interested in when he slipped on a large puddle of water that had collected on the dance floor. The staff had not provided any warning of the roof leak that caused the puddle despite complaints from the family of a wedding that had occurred at the venue the previous night.
My client’s attempt to break the fall caused extensive damage to the ligaments in his wrist and broke his middle finger. He would need ongoing medical care and physical therapy for the next year. When he told the staff, they apologized but did not pursue the matter further – in fact, he saw them quietly place a sign next to the water as he waited for his daughter to bring the car around.
When he brought the matter to court, the venue attempted to cover for the mistakes and claimed that they had put up a sign the previous night. If it weren’t for the pictures his daughter had taken during the tour, it’s likely that he would have been on his own to pay for the medical treatments he needed.
Holding institutions like the wedding venue above accountable for their mistakes is essential to ensuring they don’t cause further damage. With many organizations refusing to take responsibility, often your only recourse is to enlist the services of a personal injury lawyer.
