$1.5 Million Settlement for Somerset County Restaurant Slip-and-Fall
Slip and Fall Down a Staircase
A 77-year-old Somerset County resident accepted a $1.5 million settlement on January 27, 2014, for injuries he suffered in February 2000 following a slip-and-fall incident down a staircase at a restaurant in New Jersey. As a result of the fall, the plaintiff suffered a serious neck injury that required a multi-level fusion. Unfortunately, following the neck surgery the plaintiff developed deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which led to additional procedures and an extensive hospital stay. Liability was contested by the defendant; the settlement was reached through two days of mediation with a retired superior court judge two months before the case was scheduled to go to trial.
