Icy Parking Lot Slip & Fall-Defense Verdict
Bowers v. Providence Health and Crystal Greens, Multnomah County Case No. 1205-06404
Plaintiff was an employee of Providence Health. She went to work on an icy and snowy day and as she walked across the icy parking lot she slipped and fell. She alleged that Providence and their contracted snow remover, Crystal Greens Landscape, were negligent in failing to remove ice and snow from the parking lot. Plaintiff alleged injuries to her lower back which required a multi-level fusion surgery. She sought damages including medical expenses of $93,000, wage losses of $15,000 and non-economic damages of $250,000.
Defendants both denied liability. Defendant Providence Health asserted affirmative defenses for comparative fault.
