Businesses are often only concerned with what goes on inside their walls. However, it can be equally important to survey what goes on outside, as businesses are generally responsible for keeping particular outdoor areas up to safety standards. If businesses neglect to do this, serious injuries such as slip and fall accidents can result. In such a situation, it would be wise to contact an expert slip and fall attorney at 617-787-3700.
On January 21, 2017, Brenda Alcala was walking outside of a Courtyard by Marriot that she was staying at when she slipped and seriously injured herself due to an icy sidewalk. The injury resulted in chronic back pain and forced Alcala to switch her job. Alcala sued for premises liability and personal injury, arguing that the Marriot has a duty to safely maintain its own property. She was awarded $1.5 million by a jury. Alcala was represented by attorney Mike Bush of Bush, Motto, Creen, Koury and Halligan LLC of Davenport, Texas.
