Our 67-year-old client had just entered a bank to make a deposit. She was the first person waiting in line to enter the bank that morning. As she walked into the bank she tripped over a turned up mat directly in front of the entrance. Our client sustained permanent injuries to her knee. The bank contested the case, presenting evidence that the mat was safe and that our client was not watching where she was walking. A Philadelphia jury found in favor of the plaintiff in the amount of $225,000.
