Jury awards $1.3 million to woman who fell near hospital
A Superior Court jury has awarded $1.3 million to a Central Falls woman who fractured her kneecap near an elevator inside Hasbro Children's Hospital.
Attorneys say Fatima Delacruz was permanently disabled when she fell in the hospital in 2006.
Delacruz's attorneys argued that the hospital was negligent in failing to put up warning signs after washing the floor.
Attorneys for the hospital plan to ask for a new trial.
