A California jury has awarded a woman nearly $415,000 after she slipped and fell in a Costco store almost three years ago.
The 58 year-old woman was having lunch in the food court when she slipped on a puddle of liquid soap. Her knee cap was shattered, requiring one surgery to wire her knee together and two more may be needed. According to her attorney, employees passed the spilled soap several times and did not clean it up.
In the 12-0 decision, the jury awarded her $350,000 for her past and future pain and suffering and about $90,000 for her past and future medical expenses.
