The 26 year old plaintiff claimed in the lawsuit that the owner of an apartment building where the plaintiff sometimes resided asked him to paint portions of an exterior stairway. The landlord gave him the paint and a ladder and when the plaintiff began painting, the ladder slipped and he fell 30 feet down on to the parking lot.
In the fall the man fractured his heels, his lower back and his right wrist. He was in the hospital for 5 days, had three surgeries and was left with hardware in both his heels and his wrist. His medical bills were over $110,000.
