The plaintiff, age78, sued her Condominium Association and management company for injuries sustained when she tripped over a pneumatic hose at a garage entrance at her apartment billing. Attorneys for the plaintiff claimed that the hose was unreasonably dangerous.

The jury, employing newly promulgated jury instructions, found that the hose was not unreasonably dangerous and judgment was entered in favor of the defendants. In fact, the plaintiff had traversed the hose thousands of times before the accident and even the served on the Board of Directors of the Association, and never made any complaints about safety concerns on for the ramp. Attorneys for the plaintiff requested $840,000 after withdrawing in their demand of $350,000.
