James Kirby, a Millstadt resident, was shopping for a car on July 10, 2008 when he slipped on an unidentified substance. Kirby claims the dealership, Bob Brockland Pontiac Buick GMA, failed to alert customers to the spill. On March 3, 2010, he filed a suit claiming negligence on the part of the dealership.
Kirby claimed his daily life had been adversely affected because of his fall. He cited injuries in his knee among injuries that left him disabled, causing him to lost wages and incur medical costs.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that there are 27.7 million hospital visits per year caused by unintentional injuries, including things like slip and falls. Any fall, especially for the elderly, can lead to serious and potentially fatal injuries.
