The Facts about John’s Warehouse Slip and Fall Case
John, employed as a forklift driver, experienced a slip-and-fall accident while operating a pallet jack in a warehouse. Due to the wet conditions, the pallet jack slid out of control. In an effort to break his fall, John extended his arm, resulting in a fractured right wrist and a strained left shoulder.
After the incident, John underwent physiotherapy and occupational therapy to aid in his recovery. He was unable to continue his forklift driving job due to these physical limitations and subsequently transitioned to work as a bus driver. The case was settled for $55,000 at a compulsory conference.
