Attorney Katherine Fossey Obtains Defense Verdict in Wright County

Attorney Kate Fossey obtained a favorable jury verdict in March 2017 for her client in a slip and fall case that occurred at an assisted living/memory care facility in Buffalo, Minnesota. The Plaintiff claimed he aggravated existing soft tissue damages in his back and that he had suffered a permanent injury when he slipped and fell on ice on the sidewalk. The Plaintiff had a 50 year history of back injuries and been involved in litigation, work related accidents, and car accidents in every decade going back to the 1960s. The jury took approximately 18 minutes to return their verdict for Attorney Fossey’s client, finding that the assisted living facility was not negligent in its maintenance of the premises and that the Plaintiff did not sustain any damages that were related to an alleged fall at the facility.
