Pittsburg – Cannon v. BART

Result: $250,000

Ms. Cannon was returning home on her evening commute when she slipped and fell on dangerously rain-slickened tile at the Pittsburg/Baypoint BART Station, suffering serious injuries to her knees and wrists. Over the course of several years of litigation, Heinrich Law established that BART had prior knowledge of the condition which rendered the subject tile dangerous during rain storms. Despite this knowledge, BART had taken no efforts to correct or mitigate the problem. This matter was resolved at a court-ordered settlement conference just weeks before trial.
