Evan M. Harris, Esq. of Aiello, Harris, Marth, Tunnero & Schiffman, P.C., through their East Brunswick office, settled a Middlesex County suit for $650,000.
Mr. Harris and Mr. Pastor’s client, a Wakefern Food Corp. worker, slipped in a puddle of hydraulic fluid
at the Wakefern facility in Elizabeth, N.J, which resulted in striking his head, breaking several teeth, and suffering spinal injuries. The client was unable to return to work due to continuing back pain after undergoing two operations for disc herniations at L5-S1.
The plaintiff asserted that hydraulic fluid leaks were a problem that Wakefern heedlessly failed to fix, and thus sued Wakefern Food Corp. for negligence. Wakefern’s lawyer, averred that the company had no notice of the hazard and that the plaintiff should have been more careful because of his knowledge of the warehouse.
The case was settled after mediation with retired Superior Court Judge Mark Epstein.
