I'separated and dislocated. the shoulder when I decreased. Component of that tore. my potter’s wheel cuff, so I needed to obtain. surgery for that.I ' m Captain of my bowling team. We were going to Nationals,.
and we had to surrender, due to the fact that I can ' t bowl. It ' s among the things. that I ' m good at, that
I truly like doing. I let them all down, as a result of his neglect.
My biggest issue is that this. must never have actually occurred.
Mr Robinson, you can see. that this has impacted his life, right?- Yes,
Your Honor.- Even if you wear ' t believe it ' s your mistake, you can see. it ' s had an effect on him.- Yes, Your Honor, I do.
– I indicate,'bowling, pass times. Also taking a shower. takes regarding 2 hours. You understand, it ' s hard when.
you can ' t even wipe yourself. Well, I would ' ve
offered. Sheriff Matt to go home with you, but he didn ' t. like drawing your pants up. [giggling] [applause] So, if you had a chance. to claim something to Mr Robinson, I indicate
you all had. a connection prior to this, what would you claim to him.
concerning what you'' ve been with? And Mr Robinson,.
I desire you to receive it.Mark, I have actually been functioning.
for you, I have actually been faithful for 7, 8 years,.
something like that. Whenever you require.
me, you trust me, and I constantly do it. I might not always get.
it as quick as you desire, however these things require time. And now I'' ve been wounded, and after that you'' re adding.
disrespect to that injury. The most significant point that I want.
you to bear in mind here, [court] And obtain this, receive it. Yes, yes, Your Honor. is that you installed.
that drain in the very first area. [audience groans] [judge] Mr Robinson,.
he installed that drain that he stepped in? It was an unique project.
that needed a certain amount of concentrate on it. I recognized he might get it done.-So I tasked him to do the work.- Currently Mr Raymond, I mean are you informing me. he failed to remember that it was there? -begun currently. -Let me show you, that'' s right,- I did install that–. -Exactly how is he liable – for a drainpipe you put
in?- Allow me show you why. That opening had this.
on top of it, to cover it. This is the safety function.
that takes place top of the hole. So when you mounted it,.
you put that on top? [Raymond] I place this, and this is a sign, this is an indicator that.
there'' s a caution. There ' s a something right here,.
don'' t action on that.
Mr Robinson, do you remember. when he mounted it and these points were existing?- Yes, Your Honor, I do.- Okay.And so, er, were these points existing
. the day he fell in the hole? -No, Your Honor, they were not.
– Why not? They weren'' t present,.
due to the fact that a crew participant of the lawn cutting company.
that he referred me to, ran over that exact same top. So on the day of this loss, those points,.
that cover and the flag, that Mr Raymond put.
therein, they weren'' t there.
It took place the day. prior to the event, Your Honor.- Well, why not replace it?- Well, I needed to, I placed the indicator down, because I didn ' t. have the actual top, like the cover to it,. to set up. Did the sign keep.
people off the turf? Your Honor, it actually did. Had you seen that sign, would certainly you have. utilized the pathway? I wear ' t believe I would certainly have, due to the fact that it ' s not a warning indicator. It ' s much more, that
indication resembled. I ' m trying to expand my turf, please don ' t kill.
it by walking on it. It doesn ' t claim you ' re around.

to transform your entire life,- as a result of carelessness. -He'' s got a point. [Robinson]. You ' re not.
buying that though, – are you, Your Honor? – He ' s got a factor.
What does it matter. if the yard requires a cut, or if we reached lay fertilizer,. or if individuals like to have barbecues available, and we put on ' t. want individuals walking on outings. It doesn ' t matter.
We just require that people. to recognize the message on the indication, and to not stroll on the grass. I'assume I ' ve listened to enough. I'' m ready to render my decision. [applause] In every individual injury situation, the complainant must.
verify 3 points. The plaintiff must prove that.
the offender did glitch, which incorrect.
triggered your injuries. Mr Raymond,.
you were plainly injured. You were harmed.
when you entered an opening that you didn'' t. remember was there, because the cover was missing.
and the flag was missing.Had they been

there,.
you would certainly'' ve run right around them,.
and solved his troubles and you all would certainly.
not be here today. That'' s appropriate, Your Honor. [court] Mr Robinson, you believe.
he put the hole there, he should understand that, plus you obtained a large sign.
saying remain off the lawn. The walkway.
is 12 to 20 feet away. He could'' ve done that,.
and fixed your trouble and we wouldn'' t be right here today. Yes, Your Honor, I imply,.
there'' s no method you fail to remember a job that you do. That kind of hits usual feeling, but the legislations.
past typical sense, it'' s quite technical.And the technical.

part of the regulation states that when you are a land proprietor,. or a structure owner, you have a responsibility. to maintain the residential property, that is, in its risk-free. condition, you keep it risk-free. The problem I have. here is that it was safe when Mr Raymond placed that. cover on, and placed the join. However when you recognized that your men. had actually struck it with the lawnmower,
currently it became a hazard, that he wouldn ' t. always understand about.
I find, Mr Raymond,.
that you have actually shown that Mr Robinson was wrong.
in not at the very least informing you about this opening being there,.
or at least replacing the cap.I find that you have shown.
that his wrong in not replacing the cap created your injuries,.
and in that regard, I'' m going to honor.
you $100,000 in clinical expenses, $50,000 in lost salaries,.
and every dime of $100,000.
for discomfort and suffering. Thanks, Your Honor.
[praise] For a complete honor of $250,000. I find in your favor.
and versus Mr Robinson. That is my verdict, and this matter is adjourned. [applause] [storyteller]
Our lawyers throughout America just seen this case.
for the initial time.
Allow'' s hear what.
Gary Martin Hays has to say.
Mr. Raymond was able to prove.
the accused'' s neglect by utilizing a representation revealing the place.
of the mishap, plus pictures depicting the opening.
without the drain cover. Currently, it'' s so crucial to get photos of the scene.
of an incident, in addition to any type of condition.
or tool that might have cause the injury. Strong testimony and exhibits will truly assist you describe.
what occurred with great detail to a court.
