$50,000 Settlement in Retail Store InjuryJanuary 1, 2012
Christopher L. Musmanno, personal injury attorney with the law firm of Einhorn, Barbarito, Frost & Botwinick, Denville, NJ, announces a $50,000 settlement in an injury incurred in a major retail outlet. A child was running through the aisles of a major retail outlet prior to Christmas. The major retail outlet had merchandise displayed in the aisle, effectively reducing the width of the aisle by half. The child tripped, fell into the merchandise, resulting in scarring to the child’s face. The retailer argued that the aisle was of sufficient width, even with the merchandise displays and argued the injury was caused by the child’s running. Mr. Musmanno was able to successfully settle the case prior to trial for $50,000.
