Christopher L. Musmanno, personal injury attorney with the law firm of Einhorn, Barbarito, Frost & Botwinick, Denville, NJ, announces a $35,000 settlement for a plaintiff who was hurt when she fell on a broken sidewalk. The plaintiff had bad knees since she was a teenager and had several surgeries prior to the accident. When she was visiting her mother, she fell on a broken sidewalk at the mother’s apartment complex which resulted in her having to have arthroscopic surgery. Christopher L. Musmanno was able to prove that the owner of the complex had prior knowledge of the dangerous condition of the sidewalk. The sidewalk was immediately repaired after the plaintiff’s fall. The case was settled for $35,000 prior to trial.
