Stephanie Erhart and Jana Taylor obtain successful Summary Judgment in premises liability case in Collin County, Texas


Sometimes a fall is just a fall.  A Collin County, Texas District Judge agreed that without evidence of an unreasonably dangerous condition, even if someone falls at a restaurant, summary judgment is proper.  The Plaintiff alleged that she fell while walking down the stairs in front of a Frisco, Texas restaurant causing her to sustain a broken foot and a sprained ankle.  At her deposition, Plaintiff could not identify any specific condition about the stairs that caused her to fall.  After Plaintiff’s deposition was complete a no-evidence motion for summary judgment was filed and Defense Counsel argued that Plaintiff had no evidence of a condition that posed an unreasonable risk of harm.  After a hearing, the Court granted the Defendant’s motion.
