Attorney(s): Chris Camastro
Settlement: $525,000 Settlement
Supermarkets are busy places. Aisles filled with shopping carts, kids, shoppers and extra product making the aisles smaller than they need to be. No one knows this more than the grocers in the store. That is why our client knew she needed to hold the grocer accountable for looking to his right while walking left, knocking her down and falling on top of her. Our 62 year old client suffered a broken leg and needed surgery to install a metal rod to stabilize the bone. The supermarket denied any responsibility and blamed our client for stepping in front of the grocer…until we showed up for trial. Once they knew we were ready to proceed to trial the supermarket changed its position and ultimately settled before jury selection for $525,000. This case was handled by trial attorney Chris Camastro.
