Jury Finds Against Property Manager for Negligently Maintaining a Ceiling

Plaintiff, an 87 year old woman, was injured after a large portion of a ceiling fan fell on her.  She sued her property manager claiming that the ceiling was negligently maintained causing the ceiling to weaken and collapse.  She suffered significant lacerations to her right leg and fractured her big toe.  The defense claimed that her injuries were related to her Alzheimer’s disease and not to the ceiling fan.  The jury disagreed and awarded the plaintiff $275,000.
