Sexton and Love Obtain Defense Verdict in Favor of Hospital

T. Grant Sexton, Jr. and J C Love, III achieved a defense verdict in favor of a local hospital before the Honorable Eugene Reese in Montgomery, Alabama.  The plaintiff alleged that she sustained a torn meniscus in her left knee when she slipped and fell on a small puddle of water on the floor outside of the Intensive Care Unit waiting room shortly after morning visiting hours began.  The defense countered that the hospital neither had knowledge that the water was on the floor nor that the water was on the floor long enough for the hospital to have known about it.  The jury began its deliberations on the third day of trial and returned a defense verdict.
