Defense Verdict in a Premises Liability Claim Against Gymnasium
Brent Meyer successfully defended a gymnasium at trial from claims by a plaintiff that she incurred personal injuries from a hazardous condition on the gym’s premises. The plaintiff alleged that she tripped over a hazardous condition and that the defendant had constructive knowledge of the condition under Georgia law. The trier of fact determined that the gym client did not have constructive knowledge because the alleged hazardous condition was not obvious. As such, the client had no liability to the plaintiff.
