$135,000 Settlement for Injury from Fall in Store
A man that tripped in the Staten Island store of a national electronics chain sustaining a torn meniscus was awarded a $135,000 settlement in Federal District Court, Southern District of New York after the slip and fall lawyers at Sullivan & Brill successfully defeated the defendant's motion to dismiss the case. The client tripped over a chain channeling customers to the cash register. The store claimed that there was nothing dangerous about the chain, that it was open and obvious and the man should have seen it.
