Our client was entering an elevator when she slipped and fell on the floor. Her head hit the side of the elevator door. Partner Allan M. Siegel filed a lawsuit. During the course of discovery it was learned that the property owner had the elevator doors cleaned with elevator polish earlier in the morning. They used an aerosol can to apply the polish and it was believed that residue from spraying the aerosol on the metal doors landed on the floor causing it to be slippery.
The case settled at mediation for $350,000.
