Christopher L. Musmanno, Esq., Chair of the Personal Injury Department and Certified Civil Trial Attorney with the law firm of Einhorn, Barbarito, Frost & Botwinick, PC in Denville, NJ, announces a $265,000.00 settlement for a slip and fall.
Plaintiff is a 47 year old female. In February 2014 at approximately 3:30pm, she parked her vehicle in front of a store on East Main Street in Denville, NJ. As a result of snow, a path was shoveled through a snow bank, between the street and the commercial sidewalk in front of the store. The pathway, as a result of melting and refreezing became iced and was never salted. While walking through the path the plaintiff slipped and fell on the ice. As a result she suffered a left shoulder superior labral tear requiring arthroscopic repair and comprehensive bursectomy with the use of two (2) anchors. She also aggravated a pre-existing condition with respect to her left wrist which required cervical intervention. After numerous depositions and after the arbitration hearing, the case was settled, prior to trial, in the amount of $265,000.00.
