WEST PALM BEACH, FL., Jan. 17, 2019 — West Palm Beach personal injury lawyer David C. Prather recently obtained a $1,000,000 settlement on behalf of a Florida woman who suffered severe and permanent injuries to her knee after a fall at her place of employment.

In March 2017, the woman exited the rear building of her place of employment in Broward County, Florida, in order to reach her vehicle. She had just completed a night shift and it was dark outside. The two lights in the parking lot were broken and not operating.

As a result of the poorly functioning lights, she stepped in a pothole, which caused her to fall and sustain a displaced tibia fracture with several ruptured ligaments and avascular injury that required a stent be placed. Her injuries have rendered her permanently disabled from working as a customer service professional.

David. C. Prather successfully resolved the case for $1,000,000, citing the owner of the building breached their duty to their employee by failing to maintain their premises in a safe condition.
