$7.3 Million

Our client sustained nerve damage to her hand when she was caused to fall while holding a glass of water due to an unsecured and raised canvas floor cover placed in her home by furniture delivery men. The glass shattered in her hand when she fell resulting in lacerations and nerve damage. The jury rejected the defendants’ argument that the canvas was safely placed and that the furniture company was not responsible for the actions of the delivery men. The jury did find that the plaintiff was 65% comparatively negligent in causing the accident and the verdict was reduced by this percentage. The case was subsequently settled for $750,000. This case was featured in the New York Law Journal.
