Woman Injured after Slip and Fall at Safeway

A Hayward jury awarded a San Leandro woman $983,000 as the result of a slip and fall at a Safeway store. Our client spilled and fell on pooled water from a leak in the ceiling that Safeway had known about for weeks prior to the accident. There was a six-figure settlement offer prior to trial but the client trusted our firm to fight her case because the money offered was not enough to compensate her for her injuries. Partners, Emily Dahm and Megan Burns, tried the case and won. The client received more than double what Safeway had offered before trial.
