Our firm represented a woman whose Sunday shopping turned into a nightmare at a Long Island Costco. Our client entered an aisle and slipped on a piece of cardboard ironically known as a 'slip sheet.' It was our contention that the aisle should have been closed, warnings displayed, verbal warnings given by nearby store employees, and the slip sheet removed before customers entered the store or aisle.
Unfortunately, the 'slip' resulted in severe injuries including a badly broken wrist and thumb injury which required extensive surgery. Our firm aggressively litigated this matter in Suffolk County Supreme Court. On the eve of jury selection, we were able to successfully reach a favorable settlement for our client recovering multiple six figures of compensation.
