Fall in Stadium - Subdural Hematoma
A pleasant elderly lady enjoying a concert at a regional stadium tripped and fell, striking her head, requiring immediate hospitalization for a blow to her head and resulting in a subdural hematoma within her cranium. Gross medical bills neared $150,000.00. The owner of the facility contested fault, asserting that the claimant caused her own injury. Inspection by retained experts revealed that the stair lighting on the aisle was not working and the stair tread heights were varied, creating a risk of a fall. The case was settled to the satisfaction of client before trial.
