Jury returns $3.2 million verdict against Alaska Airlines in wrongful death lawsuit

A jury returned a verdict Monday against Alaska Airlines for $3,189,672 in a wrongful death lawsuit filed against it after a woman’s fall down a Portland International Airport escalator in June 2017 in Oregon.

The family of Bernice Kekona, a Spokane, Washington woman who died four months after her fall, filed a wrongful death suit against Alaska Airlines in December 2017, alleging neglect at the airport contributed to her injuries.

The airline filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit but a U.S. District Judge ruled against the motion in March 2018.

What Injuries Can You Get From Slip and Fall Accidents?

Injuries suffered in slip-and-fall accidents lead to about 9 million emergency room visits every year.

Slip and fall accidents are the second leading cause of unintentional death in the U.S.

Slip-and-fall injuries are particularly harmful to older adults. 

Among older adults, falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
