Trip & Fall Defense Verdict
Eddy v. Buenos Dias, LLC, Multnomah County Case No. 16CV31327
Plaintiff Eddy was a guest in Defendant Buenos Dias’ restaurant. As she went to leave, she tripped over a portion of carpet that was upturned and used by the restaurant to prop open their front door. She claimed that the lighting was poor in the area. She brought this action for allowing a dangerous condition to exist on the property and failing to warn patrons of the danger. Eddy alleged that she fell and suffered injuries including: broken teeth, facial laceration and scarring as well as a concussion. She sought economic damages for past and future medical expenses, wage losses and impaired earning capacity totaling $250,000. She also sought $600,000 for non-economic damages.
Defendant Buenos Dias denied liability. They argued that Eddy was responsible for her own injuries for failing to keep a proper look out.
