A woman who fell by a collapsed "wet floor" sign at Jack Casino was awarded $3 million this past week by a Hamilton County jury. Lynda Sadowski walked toward the sign, which lay flat on the floor, in September 2016. Customers had knocked it over, and a Jack employee walked around it but failed to pick it up moments before Sadowski tripped over it, according to her attorney Matt Nakajima. Sadowski suffered a broken knee cap and metal hardware was placed in her knee. Her mobility has since worsened and she has arthritis at the fracture site, Nakajima said by email. A second surgery may be necessary.

Comments:

Now she can say she walked into a casino and won 3 million.

Lawsuits like this are why I will probably never be able to do my civic duty and serve on a jury. I would have hung the jury, there's no way this woman would have gotten a dime.

In the photo from a security camera, it clearly shows the sign lying on the floor with the woman walking toward it. Now any normal person with eye sight can read the sign warning of a wet floor. She chose to ignore it, and walk over it. If she was injured because she ignored the warning, then that's her fault.

She was walking toward the sign and saw an employee not pick it up? She then tripped over it? I’m with #2 and I’ll bet that she “tripped” over it on purpose.

From the photo it looks like she was laser focused on the $3.95 prime rib buffet.

Served on a jury this spring. I was picked after 13 people were dismissed by the judge. They only asked me three questions and I knew I was in trouble. I got picked to be on the jury. I wound up being the foreman.Woman suing the school district for a MVA which killed her husband (school bus vs motorcycle). Felt awful for everyone. No bad people here. Bus driver will live with it the rest of her life. Wife wanted 10 million dollars. We felt it was a money grab. No amount of money is going to bring him back. Didn't feel that she should get rich off of it. We ended up giving her $1.2 million. Sadly, she had turned down a $2 million offer from the school district and it went to trial. That was tough to find that out. Glad that I'm not eligible to be on jury duty for two years. I'm glad I did it but I don't want to ever do it again.

A decent judge would have said, "watch where the hell you are going next time" but decent judges are about as rare as albino bats.

Ridiculous. Should have gotten hospital bills paid and maybe $40K for her 'pain and suffering'. Totally, massively, stupidly out of proportion.

Our local news channel (WSB in Atlanta) runs back to back ambulance chasing lawyer ads. I think that's about all that finances their news program. I understand the economics....don't turn down good ad revenue but, geez, it's embarrassing. The ads are obviously aimed at low information people, especially blacks. They claim that they can get you a huge settlement that "you deserve" as they pitch it. Disgusting...really.

As a part-time janitor, I've always been paranoid about this happening. I have public liability insurance as an independent contractor but I still take extra precautions. If I've just mopped the floor in the public spaces, I will wait until it is completely dry before leaving the building. I want to make sure that no-one has slipped on it.

We had a driver rear ended a car, truly a minor accident, and his first in 34 years of driving. The old hag wanted $400,000 plus medical bills, she developed whiplash of course. She ended up with $65000. About $64000 too much in my opinion.

They just want the world to be a perfect place and they will sue and sue until they get it. And then they will sue some more.

So.. the 'wet floor' sign is not readable when it is flat on the floor? I had jury duty over 20 years ago. He was convicted. I never knew I could be so persuasive. It felt good!

David Axelrod, former President Barack Obama’s chief campaign strategist, said Saturday that President Donald Trump’s criticism of Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) and the Democrat-run city of Baltimore could cost him the 2020 election.“If @realDonaldTrump loses in 2020, this will be why,” Axelrod wrote on Twitter. “Every, single day, he subjects the country he was elected to lead to a stream of ugly, divisive bombast. It’s exhausting. It’s destructive. It’s unworthy of a POTUS.” “realDonaldTrump may believe in multiplication by division but it doesn’t add up for the American people. The rancor and chaos his daily dose of nastiness creates is a barrier to actually getting things done on tangible concerns,”

A newlywed couple are willing to give up their dream of starting a family in order to help save the planet. Ella Starling, 27, and her husband Jackson, 29, are committed environmental activists and had always planned to have children together. But the couple fear that the “planet is not right for a baby” and after extensively researching the risks that come hand-in-hand with climate change, have drawn to the conclusion that bringing a child into the world would be “unfeasible” right now. “The decision to not have children hurts, but I am not convinced the future of our planet

The Chairman of the NAACP board of directors on Saturday said President Donald Trump should be impeached for his “vile racist attack” on Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) and the “despicable” attacks on Baltimore. Leon W. Russell, the chairman, also accused Trump of running a “criminal enterprise” and turning the White House into a “racist cesspool.” “Today is the absolute low point in an otherwise abysmal Presidential Administration. The vile racist attack on Congressman Elijah Cummings and the City of Baltimore is despicable. The White House is the seat of a criminal enterprise and a racist cesspool,” Russell said. “Given the racist and criminal nature of the occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue,

This editorial is intended as a friendly, cheer-up gesture to our friends in the 7th District of Maryland. They’re stinging from the insults of President Trump, who, in a feud with Congressman Elijah Cummings, sent out a twitter characterizing the district as a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.” The jibe was met with a riposte by a Baltimore native, CNN’s Victor Blackwell, who choked up in broadcast that has gone viral. We hope Mr. Blackwell can take some comfort in the fact that when it comes to rats, Baltimore has got nothing on Mr. Trump’s hometown. The other day we were transferring trains

MAKINDYE-LUKULI, Uganda   — The darkening clouds are ominous for many in this urban neighborhood, promising rushing rainwaters stinking of human waste from overflowing septic tanks. As Africa faces a population boom unmatched anywhere in the world, millions of people are moving to fast-growing cities while decades-old public facilities crumble under the pressure. Sewage is a scourge for residents of this community on the outskirts of Uganda’s capital, Kampala. There are no public toilets for some 1,200 people. Mud tinged with feces washes into homes during heavy rains.

A doctor who served former President Obama for more than 20 years before his presidency said this week he thought former Vice President Joe Biden "looked frail" during the first Democratic debate in Miami, when he was attacked by Sen. Kamala Harris. Dr. David Scheiner told the Washington Examiner that Biden's appearance during the debate made him nervous. "Harris started attacking him and he looked frail to me," Scheiner said. "I sort of got the feeling he wasn’t very strong. It was similar to the feeling I got when Republicans started attacking Mueller so fiercely."
