Defense Verdict for Philadelphia Grocery Client

Plaintiff alleged she sustained lacerations to her hand while reaching for frozen broccoli in our client’s display case. She alleged two pointed metal objects, eight inches in length, were dislodged and caused the injury as she reached inside the freezer. She further contended the injuries resulted in pain, discoloration and swelling and residual discomfort due to weather changes. An Arbitration panel rendered a net award of $9,000, we appealed, plaintiff refused settlement offers, and Paul Weisbein represented our client in trial resulting in a defense verdict.
