One recent Massachusetts case, Fogarty v. Whole Foods Market Group, Inc., presents a warning to be careful in the lawyer and expert you hire!
The Plaintiff suffered personal injuries when she fell down a concrete staircase in a Cambridge Whole Foods store. For whatever reason, it seems that the expert hired by Plaintiff slip and fall lawyer did not properly investigate the staircase right away. In fact, the evidence was that the expert waited until about two years after Plaintiff’s slip and fall before investigating the scene!!
Predictably, Defendant moved to strike (exclude) the expert’s statement. The federal judge agreed – finding that the expert failed to provide a reliable basis for his opinion. Uh oh. After that, the federal judge also granted defendant’s motion for summary judgment — meaning that the Plaintiff lost her case outright!
