Lewis & Peerson Win Defense Verdict in Clay County Parking Lot Fall

Posted on December 1st 2010

Schnabel v. Hy-Vee, Inc. William Lewis and Haley Peerson convinced a Clay County jury to assess no fault on Hy-Vee for a slip and fall involving a 72 year old woman. Plaintiff claimed that she fell when she stepped out of her car in the parking lot at the Gladstone Hy-Vee. She testified that as she stepped out of her vehicle, her ankle twisted and she fell forward into a puddle of muddy water. She believed that because her ankle twisted, her foot must have been in a "hole" in the parking lot. The Plaintiff testified that she could not see the "hole" in the parking lot because there was snow piled up in the parking lot, which was melting and causing a "river" to run through the parking lot and conceal the "hole". Plaintiff suffered a fracture to her patella as a result of this fall. Read More
