12 Jan: $405,000 Settlement of a Premises Liability Action

$405,000 settlement of a premises liability action in which the Plaintiff’s foot became snagged in a gap in the floor of a busy office building.  The Defendant created a gap in the floor through construction and failed to repair the gap in a timely manner.  The Plaintiff suffered injuries to her upper extremities triggering a complex regional pain syndrome that forced her into extensive medical care and disability from work for over two years. Her injury is permanent yet under control. The recovery included compensation for pain, suffering and disability as well as reimbursement for medical bills owed.  (Middlesex County, 2016).
