We're pleased that we were able to secure a settlement for her in this case, which will compensate her for her medical bills and other costs related to the injury.
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 26, 2010
Personal injury attorneys from the law firm of Cellino & Barnes recently resolved a personal injury lawsuit, which resulted in a $1.6 million settlement to their client who suffered a serious back injury in a slip and fall accident.
The case, Sheri A. Gostomski v. Benderson Development Company, Inc. (Index No. I-2006-02431), was involved an incident that occurred on August 14, 2003, inside the premises of Loeffler Beauty Supply in Hamburg, a town in Erie County, N.Y. On that day, Gostomski was working inside the store when she slipped on water, a known problem that was supposed to be fixed by the owner of the building, Benderson Development Company. As a result of her fall, Gostomski suffered a herniated disc in her back, which required multiple surgeries.
Benderson Development is one of the largest privately owned development companies in North America, a leader in retail and power center development, and currently ranks as one of the largest strip center developers nationwide.
Ms. Gostomski was represented in the lawsuit by attorneys Dylan Brennan and Gregory Pajak, both experienced trial lawyers at the New York Law firm of Cellino & Barnes, one of the nation's largest personal injury law firms.
"The slip and fall injury that our client suffered is a surprisingly common occurrence, with many victims such as Ms. Gostomski suffering serious injuries as result of the negligence of a property or business owner," said Brennan, an experienced New York slip and fall attorney. "We're pleased that we were able to secure a settlement for her in this case, which will compensate her for her medical bills and other costs related to the injury."
