Attorneys Kyle Zrenda and Timothy Bouchard of Suisman Shapiro Win Over $284,000 at Trial on Behalf of Client Injured in Workplace Slip

Recently, following a two-day trial, a New London County jury awarded Attorneys Kyle Zrenda and Tim Bouchard’s client $284,514.07 for injuries he suffered in a slip on a wet floor at work. Despite not putting up any warning signs, the defendant, a commercial cleaning company, argued that the wet floor was not dangerous, and should have been obvious to the client. Suisman Shapiro’s team was able to convince the jury that the floor was hazardous, and that their client could not have seen its dangerous condition before he slipped.

The client, a 33-year-old New London man, previously injured his back in a car accident four months earlier. Attorney Zrenda and Attorney Bouchard successfully argued that his slip made those back injuries worse, and played an important role in his need for additional treatment.
