VERTEX regularly provides expert consulting for premises liability cases (also referred to as “Slip/Trip and Fall” cases). This case relates to an accident involving a man that tripped near a sidewalk curb within a multifamily residential community. VERTEX represented the homeowners association (“Association”) that was being sued for alleged negligence.
Through our detailed code analysis, measurements taken at the site, and other relevant research, VERTEX was able to prove that the Association performed all duties reasonably expected of them, provided a site that was not in violation of any building codes or standards, and were therefore not responsible. VERTEX was able to help defend the Association from being held liable for the event.
