Client was a 58 year old nurse’s assistant who was walking through the hospital when she slipped and fell in a pool of stripping wax that had been left near the elevator by the maintenance crew. As a result of the fall, our client suffered a herniated disc at L4-5, causing severe back pain that radiated down to her legs.

The matter settled for $350,000.00.
