In January 2014, Noel Halpin obtained a defense verdict for a National Retailer in a trip and fall case in Fayette County, Kentucky. The Plaintiff claimed that the store was negligent for not remedying an alleged defect on the tiled floor, approximately the size of a quarter. Plaintiff claimed that her five-year-old daughter tripped in that same spot and fractured her wrist. The store proved that the child fell in a different spot, approximately fifteen feet away, and that she had been running immediately prior to falling. There was no defect in the tiled floor and the cause of the fall was not the alleged defect in the tile. The jury agreed and returned with a defense verdict.
