$80,000.00 (Trip and Fall)
$80,000 – On May 2018, Kohn Law Office in association with Skolnick Law Group obtained an $80,000 settlement on behalf of their client who had tripped and fell at the Westfield Mall in Carlsbad, California. The client tripped on torn carpeting at one of the mall entrances when she was leaving the premises, causing her to fall to the ground and herniate her L5-S1 disk in her low back. The client received physical therapy and opted not to have surgery. The Mall denied liability and asserted that the surveillance video was overwritten because the fall had not been reported until 15 days after the fall. A lawsuit was filed, and the case was resolved by settlement at mediation. The settlement was paid by the Westfield Mall's insurer, Liberty Mutual Insurance Company.
