Florida Woman Awarded $1M For Faulty Handrail Injuries

A Fort Pierce jury awarded a woman more that $1 million dollars against her landlord who did not fix faulty handrails, reports Florida’s TCPalm.

The 32-year-old woman complained about the faulty handrails when she moved into her apartment and was told they would be fixed. The landlord continued to receive numerous complaints from tenants and the property manager about the loose handrails.

In 2007, woman slipped on her apartment landing, grabbed the handrail, which gave way, causing her to fall down four steps. She injured her neck and back, has had three surgeries, and had medical bills totaling almost $200,000.

The jury award was for past, present and future medical bills and for lost wages.
