A Raritan woman was leaving the Time to Eat Diner in Bridgewater, N.J. and fell on the steps
that had formed ice while she was inside. She suffered spinal injuries, which required her to have two surgeries, leaving her disabled.
The woman was represented by Christopher G. Aiello and Evan M. Harris of Aiello, Harris, Marth, Tunnero & Schiffman, P.C. located in Watchung, N.J.
Mr. Aiello and Mr. Harris said their expert estimated that their client suffered $1.7 million in lost wages. The defense argued that their client held responsibility for the accident because she was wearing three-inch heels and that the ice formed too quickly for the diner to clear the steps.
Mr. Aiello and Mr. Harris settled the case in Somerset County for $1.3 million.
