Evelyn R. v. Shopping Center

Premises liability, trip and fall, ankle fracture, trimalleolar fracture, open reduction and internal fixation

Evelyn R., an 82 year young lady, went to a shopping center in Sunrise, Florida to attend a matinee at the local movie theater with a friend. As she attempted to get out of the car she stepped into a pothole in the middle of the parking lot breaking her ankle that required open reduction and internal fixation with hardware. The nature of the break was a trimalleolar fracture of the ankle. It took Evelyn R. over a year to recover from her injury and she was left with significant medical bills and a painful ankle that would swell regularly. Evelyn contacted the owner of the shopping mall asking them to reimburse her for the medical bills that she incurred. They ignored her.

Evelyn contacted Sam Coffey to see if he could help her. Sam Coffey filed a lawsuit and recovered for Evelyn more than five times her medical bills against the shopping center, the maintenance company for the shopping center and the tarmac patching contractor for the shopping center.
