Elderly Man Awarded $4 in Slip and Fall Incident

A Pennsylvania man was awarded $4 million after a slip and fall incident left him blind. Bill Waite, 80 years old at the time, fell down an unmarked step outside a shopping center in York Township, Pennsylvania. Waite then struck his left eye against a chair. He was already essentially blind in his right eye when the incident occurred. Thus, the fall left him totally blind.

Waite was leaving Steinmetz Coins and Currency when he fell down the unmarked step. According to the lawsuit, the walkway was level save for the lone step. Despite the lawsuit, the step remains unmarked, according to Waite’s attorney.

The great-grandfather, who enjoys golf, playing with his dog and spending time with his family, suffered a significant loss due to the slip and fall incident. He hopes the money will help make life easier for his wife.

“A slip and fall incident can change life as you know it, and this case demonstrates that reality. We’re glad Mr. Waite will finally receive compensation for his suffering,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
