Civil Plaintiff

Jury awards $3.2M in a slip and fall on ice

A state jury awarded $3.2 million to a plaintiff who was injured in a slip and fall accident at an outlet shopping plaza in Jackson, New Jersey. 

The award in Stubbs v. Jackson Premium Outlets, Valor Security, and Able Maintenance Company stems from a case in which the client of attorney
Kim Gozsa, a partner at Levinson Axelrod, P.A., slipped and fell on ice on a sidewalk at the Jackson Premium Outlets. Upon investigation, it was discovered the ice had been a long-standing problem, and was caused by a leaky soffit which the defendants ignored and failed to fix.

The plaintiff suffered a hip fracture which was initially treated using three medical-grade screws. However, ongoing pain necessitated removal of the screws, and the plaintiff underwent a hip replacement surgery. Unfortunately, the outcome of that procedure was not as anticipated, and our client was unable to return to work.
