Legal Result For Grocery Store Slip and Fall

As she was shopping at a regional grocery store, our client tripped over loose carpeting as she exited the restroom. Two days later, she was examined for shoulder and hand pain. All imaging was negative, and she was referred to physical therapy.

After five visits to physical therapy, she still had pain. Four months later, an MRI was ordered and discovered a small tear in her right shoulder.

The grocer's in-house legal counsel asked Attorney David Metnick of Hupy and Abraham to explain why the grocer was responsible for the injury. A complaint was drafted, emailed and outlined the theory of the case.

Without filing a lawsuit, the case was settled for $130,000.00, and the client won $75,000.00.
