disclaimerA plaintiff who sustained a broken arm in a slip and fall accident settled her Monmouth Superior Court personal injury lawsuit for $525,000. Plaintiff was injured when she slipped and fell while attempting to pick up her child up from a party at the defendant’s house. Plaintiff broke both bones in her forearm, requiring insertion of plates and screws, as well as a second procedure involving partial removal of a bone. An expert witness / engineer retained by plaintiff claimed that the walkway where she slipped had been improperly constructed by defendant and was improperly lit. The case settled prior to trial for the reported amount.
