Jay Kerr Law: Premises Liability

  1. 1. Image 1: Employee enters elevator vestibule. Carpet tiles, with “seams” created using duct tape, have been laid down for flooring protection during construction project.
  2. 2. Image 2: Duct taping over tile “seam” (circled) is partially detached, creating a raised edge tripping hazard which existed prior to Employee’s encounter.
  3. 3. Image 3: Enhanced view of detached duct taping and raised edge at seam.
  4. 4. Image 4: Additional enhanced view of detached duct tape creating raised edge and tripping hazard.
  5. 5. Image 5: Depicts the left, side-edge of Employee’s left foot adjacent to the raised edge of detached duct tape, immediately before her left foot is caught on the raised edge as she takes a step.
  6. 6. Image 6: As she takes a step, the left-edge of her shoe is caught by the raised-edge of detached duct tape. As evident on the video, her left shoe “rolls” slightly due to her body momentum over the brief capture of her foot by the detached edge of duct tape, causing her to lose her balance and fall.
  7. 7. Image 7: After her left shoe edge contacts the section of raised duct tape, it causes the tape seam to detach further and furl more narrowly.
  8. 8. Image 8: Unable to regain her balance, Employee falls to her left side, injuring her left arm.
  9. 9. Image 9: This image depicts the further detachment of the duct tape from the seam, in contrast to its condition prior to contact by the left-edge of Employee’s shoe (see image 3).
  10. 10. Image 9: This image depicts the further detachment of the duct tape from the seam, in contrast to its condition prior to contact by the left-edge of Employee’s shoe (see image 3).
