An Augusta shopping center owner and management company were sued in a trip and fall liability case seeking in excess of $250,000. The case was tried in the US District Court in Augusta.
The plaintiff suffered serious injuries to his right elbow. He subsequently had surgery and received a permanent impairment rating of 8%. His medical bills totaled over $52,000.
The retailer in the shopping center was also sued by the plaintiff. The retailer settled before trial.
This week, attorney George Hall of Hull Barrett, PC and co-counsel went to trial on behalf of the shopping center owner and management company. After 2 days of trial, the jury awarded $15,725 to the plaintiff, far from the $250,000 sought.
