Noteworthy Case for the Personal Injury Department: 76 year old plaintiff slipped and fell on ice embedded in a cracked walkway within the common area of a shopping strip sustained a subdural hematoma but the plaintiff had pre-existing and ongoing treatment to her head prior to the fall. This matter settled during a mediation for $490,000.00. The individual stores all contributed to the resolution of the matter since they each had a duty to maintain the common area clean and defect free, as discovered during the litigation. Congratulations to partner, Elias N. Fillas, Esq. of bringing this matter to a close by holding all the individual stores accountable for their negligence.
