  • Attorney: John E. Molinari
  • Settlement: $340,000 settlement
  • Practice Areas: Premises Liability

John Molinari represented a 46 year old Jersey City resident who fell on ice while walking to her parked car.  The ice was located on the sidewalk adjacent to an undeveloped parcel of land near her home. The ice was likely the result of a re-freeze of the snow following a temperature change since the sidewalk had not been salted.  Plaintiff fractured both the bones in her right lower leg, the tibia and the fibula. She underwent two surgical procedures, first to insert hardware to stabilize the fracture and then to remove the hardware when she began experiencing pain in the area of the screws. The case settled following a judicial conference just prior to trial.
