Plaintiff slipped and fell in a Brooklyn supermarket on December 8, 2011 due to a freshly mopped floor with no signs or notice posted to warn customers of the wet floor. Plaintiff ruptured her Achilles tendon and required surgery. During litigation, Dawn M. Pinnisi discovered that the supermarket captured the accident on surveillance video. When the supermarket alleged to have lost the video, an application was made to the Court and the Judge ruled that the jury could infer that the video would have supported Plaintiff’s version of the accident.
