The Plaintiff entered Brevard Job Link to conduct some business. Upon arrival, she was directed to take a seat and await the calling of her name. Unbeknownst to the Plaintiff, there was an electrical cord loosely draped across the carpeted floor and looped around the front of the chair she chose to sit in. The cord was largely camouflaged by the carpeted floor and was not apparent to Plaintiff as she waited for her name to be called. When Plaintiff was finally summoned to conduct her business, she simply stood up and took a step or two forward when her shoe caught the cord, causing her to fall to the floor.
After a visit to the emergency room, the Plaintiff saw a local orthopedic surgeon. His diagnostic studies revealed a severely protruding disk at L2-3 and surgery was recommended. She underwent back surgery.
Nance Cacciatore settled this case prior to trial for $200,000.00.
