A slip and fall case was recently settled. The case had been taken to trial and the jury was deliberating when an agreement was reached.
The jury had been deliberating for part of one day and had returned for more deliberation when the presiding judge, Madison County Associate Judge Thomas Chapman, sent them home.
The plaintiff, listed as Taylor, sued James Green Management Company, RMS and Residential Marketing Systems. Taylor alleged that the companies failed to clear snow and ice from a Bethalto apartment complex parking lot.
Taylor slipped and fell, hurting his right arm and shoulder. The damages sought were at least $50,000. However, details of the actual settlement were not available.
