Category : Slip and Fall
In December 2007, Veronica Tinsley exited a Metro train at Cheverly, slipped on a wet platform, fell to the ground and fractured her ankle. In February 2010, Kim Hodge slipped on a wet floor at Prince George’s County Plaza Metro, fell to the ground and was badly injured. They both filed slip and fall lawsuits against Metro. In October, 2012, both cases were thrown out by the Court of Appeals for a reason that would make the Queen of England smile and a Maryland citizen gasp with disbelief -sovereign immunity.
