$225,000 Settlement for Client Injured by Fall at Dutchess County Hardware Store
In September 2020, Feldman, Kleidman, Coffey and Sappe LLP’s (FKC&S) 60-year-old client, a resident of Salt Point, NY, was shopping with her son at a hardware store in Pleasant Valley, NY. While they were there shopping for paint, she tripped and fell over a small display box that should not have been in the aisle. She landed on her hand and sustained a fracture of her dominant wrist, necessitating surgery where hardware was put in to help the bones heal. FKC&S’s client missed about 10 weeks of work. The case was placed into suit and was settled for $225,000 before depositions were held.
