Texas Court Finds Care Center And Resident Were Jointly Liable For Accident

(August 28, 2015, 12:42 PM EDT) -- DALLAS — After finding that an assisted living facility failed to warn a resident about a drainage grate on a walking path and that the resident was improperly using his walker when he fell and sustained injuries that caused his death, a Texas appeals court on Aug. 25 affirmed a jury verdict that found that each party was jointly liable for the accident (Christian Care Centers Inc. v. Rebecca O'Banion, et al., No. 05-12-01407, Texas App., 5th Dist.; 2015 Tex. App. LEXIS 8916).
