Hentschel x Lanza represented an individual who was dining in the outside patio of a well-known restaurant in the Design District of Miami, Florida when he was caused to slip-and-fall. The client, who was already suffering from a disease that affects his bones, broke his leg as a result of the incident. It had rained earlier in the day, therefore, making the floor slippery and promoting restaurant employees to place “slippery when wet” signs around the restaurant. However, the team at Hentschel x Lanza retained multiple experts to prove that the surface tile was not up to applicable code and was improper for its location in order to battle the defense’s argument that the placed signs were sufficient. The parties were able to resolve the matter for $225,000.00 following discovery.
