Premises Liability – Fall From Hotel Window

Walkup’s premises liability team represented a hotel guest who fell from a third-floor window, obtaining a major settlement in a confidential seven-figure amount on his behalf. Our client was a visiting 39-year-old CEO who fell in the middle of the night. He sustained a comminuted grade III open fracture of the left ankle, a burst fracture in his spine at L-3 and a compression injury to the right ulnar nerve. The defendant argued that the design of the windows complied with all applicable building code(s). After mediation, the parties settled for a combination of cash and future tax-free monthly payments.
