$35,000 Verdict in District of Columbia Slip and Fall

As District of Columbia Lorton Correctional Facility prisoner Kevin Allan
was exiting a prison van, he requested assistance to step on the milk crate
used as a step. Despite being in leg irons, handcuffs, and a waist
restraint, guards told him to do as you are told. As he stepped onto the
milk crate, Allan slipped and fell, suffering a herniated lumbar disc. On
August 4, 1994, a jury awarded Hall $35,000 for his injury. See: Allan v.
District of Columbia, District of Columbia Superior Court, Case No: 92-15742
