Jury awards $1 million to woman injured at the Belvedere Hotel

On Monday, April 12th, a jury in Baltimore County awarded $1 million to a 52-year-old woman who fell down a flight of stairs at the Belvedere hotel while attending her own bachelorette party.

Lillian Blank, who was standing on a dance floor on the 13th floor bar,fell down 19 steps, to a landing between the 12th and 13th floors of the hotel, sustaining a fractured pelvis and a fractured wrist. She filed suit against the hotel, alleging the hotel failed to provide proper lighting at the stairs, and the dimly lit staircase had a dark rope at the top of stairs which Ms. Blank could not see.

After a 4 day trial, during which the plaintiff's alcohol consumption prior to the fall became an issue, the jury returned a verdict in her favor, awarding her $59,546 for medical expenses, $44,694 for lost wages and $895,660 for pain and suffering. The verdict will be reduced to $791,935.70 because of the cap of non-economic damages.
