Richard Tulecki “slipped and fell on a wet foreign substance” near the restroom of a restaurant in in July 2019, according to his lawyers. The January 2021 lawsuit claimed the fall caused him to suffer “serious injuries.” The lawsuit alleged the Burger King franchisee breached its duty of care by exposing customers to a hazard.
On May 11, 2023 A jury reached a verdict in favor of Tulecki and awarded him damages of $7.81 million, including $3.35 million related to loss of earnings and around $700,000 for medical expenses. The total award was reduced to $7.68 million based on medical expenses covered by the plaintiff’s insurance. The slip and fall gave Tulecki lower back injuries that required surgery and that surgery was complicated by a post-operative perforated colon his lawyers said in a press release.
The most common injury nationwide is a “slip and fall” injury. Suffering a fall is something that can happen to any person in nearly any circumstance. There are also a wide range of injuries that could be caused by a fall. Some are very minor, while others like this one may be severe and potentially life-changing. California’s law surrounding slip and fall cases is relatively strict. If you suffered a fall that was caused by another person, either directly or indirectly, you may be able to file a legal claim for compensation. You could file an insurance claim, which is particularly effective if you are dealing with a large corporation, or you could file a legal claim. It is also possible to file both claims simultaneously.
