New York Personal Injury Lawyer Announces $72,500 Settlement for Falling Object Injury at Bronx Big Box Store
A Manhattan woman and her husband went shopping at a big box store in the Bronx. While standing in the check out line, an employee knocked over some wood that hit the woman in the head. The incident left the woman with a concussion and neck and arm injuries. She retained our firm to represent her. The big box store initially attempted to deny liability and refused to negotiate on the case, but we built a strong case that compelled them to accept liability. The store then sought to minimize the value of the case, but we worked with our medical team and case law analysis to raise the value. In the end, the store, which said they would pay nothing, agreed to settle the case for $72,500, making for a very happy client.
