Andrew D. Hall and Michael C. Kuehner recently defended a local business against claims made by a customer who injured himself at Des Moines-area car wash. The plaintiff alleged that the car wash engaged in negligent cleaning and inspection practices. As a result, he claimed he fell and was injured. During a three-day trial in Polk County, Iowa, Hall and Kuehner elicited testimony showing that the car wash practices and policies met the standard of care. They also presented evidence that the plaintiff was injured as a result of his own actions. The jury agreed and returned a defense verdict.
