Pryor Wins Defense Verdict

Shareholder Caroline T. Pryor of Carr Allison’s Mobile AL office earned a defense verdict in a Mobile County trip and fall case in which the plaintiff alleged that a store owner negligently failed to properly maintain its premises and negligently failed to warn the plaintiff of a packing box which was sitting on the floor of the store.   The theory of the defense was that the packing box was an open and obvious condition.   Surveillance video was used to show that the plaintiff walked past and stood next to the box several times before the accident occurred.
