Tiger Woods Faces Slip and Fall Lawsuit
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A trial date has been scheduled for a
lawsuit against Tiger Woods after a former police officer slipped and fell at
Woods’ mansion back in 2010. The retired police officer was working
a private security detail at the $50 million dollar Miami property when
he slipped on wet marble and fell, injuring his knee. The lawsuit states
that a sprinkler head was badly oriented and made the marble slippery.
They site that an accident was “bound to happen” with those
conditions. Woods’ attorney answered back citing that the security
detail should have known that the pavement was slippery.
Slips, trips, and falls account for at least 45,000 injuries per year.
While some may be minor injuries, there are instances where these can
cause major injuries and even fatalities. Most slips, trips, and falls
can be caused by slippery floor surfaces, inappropriate footwear, walkway
obstructions and uneven surfaces. Don’t forget about falls from
stationary structures and products such as ladders, porches, and balconies,
just to name a few. Victims can sustain injuries from slip and falls and
be stuck with many medical bills, physical therapy needs and even time
off of work. Many wonder how they will pay for all of their needs after
experiencing an injury. Contact a personal injury attorney anytime you
are injured due to a trip, slip or fall. An experienced attorney can determine
