Joseph Petka Obtains Defense Verdict in a Premises Liability Action

Joseph Petka obtained a defense verdict in a premises liability action involving a defendant hospital.  The plaintiff alleged that, while at the hospital, a toilet seat she was using broke off, causing her to fall to the ground and sustain a neck injury.  Mr. Petka successfully argued that there was no credible evidence supporting the plaintiff’s claims, and that she thus failed to meet her burden of proof.
