Woman who tripped on collapsed 'wet floor' sign at Jack Casino awarded $3 million by jury

A woman who fell by a collapsed "wet floor" sign at Jack Casino was awarded $3 million this past week by a Hamilton County jury.

Lynda Sadowski walked toward the sign, which lay flat on the floor, in September 2016. Customers had knocked it over, and a Jack employee walked around it but failed to pick it up moments before Sadowski tripped over it, according to her attorney Matt Nakajima.

Sadowski suffered a broken knee cap and metal hardware was placed in her knee. Her mobility has since worsened and she has arthritis at the fracture site, Nakajima said by email. A second surgery may be necessary.

"The casino had no safety policies in place for floor inspection or fall prevention and had no criticism of the employee’s failure to pick up the trip hazard even though its own internal documents found her at fault," Nakajima wrote. "The Casino’s callous disregard for their customers’ safety was on full display throughout the trial."

2. People don't watch where they are walking.

I've seen people walk right through a pile of blueberries which had spilled onto the floor of a grocery store. Seriously! How do you not see it?! Pay attention, people!

Although, that employee should have picked up that wet floor sign.

3. I've seen people walking with their cell phones that are completely oblivious to what is happening

around them. While we used to joke about walking and chewing gum at the same time, walking and zoning out on the cell phone can be deadly.
