$24,500 Settlement in Slip and Fall Suit

Wackenhut Corrections Corporation paid $24,500 to settle a slip and fall and negligent maintenance suit filed by Florida prisoner Randolf Bailey.

The incident occurred on October 2, 2002 at South Bay Correctional Facility. In his complaint, Bailey claims he was exiting the chapel through a hallway that had just been mopped, leaving the floor in a wet, slippery condition. Wackenhut Corrections Corporation failed in any way to warn Bailey of the floor’s condition.

Bailey alleged as a result of Wackenhut’s negligence, he suffered bodily injury, pain and suffering, disability and disfigurement and the loss of capacity for normal enjoyment of life.

The case was settled on December 15, 2009. Bailey was represented by Benjamin J. Lusskin of Hollywood, Florida. See: Bailey v. Wackenhut Corrections Corporation, 15th Judicial Circuit, Palm Beach County, Fla. Case No. 03CA010167AA.
