Burch & Cracchiolo

Burch & Cracchiolo client QuikTrip obtained a defense verdict from a jury in a premises liability case on August 6, 2014. The plaintiff had slipped and fallen on the sidewalk in front of the store where an employee was power washing the area. The plaintiff sued QuikTrip claiming that signs should have been put out warning her that the ground was wet, even though she knew it was being power washed and knew it was wet, she claimed to have a shoulder injury of some significance but never reported it to a physician until nine months had passed. The jury  was out for a mere 40 minutes before returning a unanimous verdict for QuikTrip.  The jury specifically found the injuries the plaintiff sustained were not caused by her fall , and that she was not entitled to money damages. Attorneys Ian Neale and Sarah N. O'Keefe represented Quiktrip assisted by paralegal Debra Wedlake and legal assistant Lori Boukatch.
