$202,000 Verdict – customer slips on grease at Wendy’s (Key West)

John Elliott Leighton represented the Bernreuter family in a case against the Wendy’s restaurant in Key West.  Mrs. Bernreuter was walking out of the Wendy’s when she sipped and fell on grease that had leaked from a bucket that was supposed to dispose of the grease.  Wendy’s denied responsibility and claimed that the substance was not theirs.  Mr. Leighton tried the case and obtained a $202,000 jury verdict for our client, who had sustained a fractured arm. Bernreuter v. E & A Restaurants of the Keys (Monroe County Circuit Court).
