$125,000 Settlement After Two Days of Trial Evidence - Man Fractures Left Hip at Mohegan Sun

Kevin Smith secured a $125,000 settlement for a 82 year old client who fractured his left hip at the Mohegan Sun casino. The client tripped and fell on a stage/table skirt draping down from a platform and extending into and upon the concourse in Mohegan Sun. Smith obtained video surveillance of the fall and retained an expert witness who opined, among other things, that the skirt improperly extended into and upon the walking portion of the concourse in violation of the Connecticut Fire Safety Code.

After two days of trial evidence in the Mohegan Gaming Disputes Court, the case ultimately settled for $125,000.
