In May, 2014, Margaret was in the produce section of a grocery store in Fall River, Massachusetts when she was caused to slip and fall on grape(s) that were on the floor. Margaret was wearing flip flops and the grape was stuck to the bottom of her flip flop. At the time of this incident, the Plaintiff was healing from an unrelated surgical procedure two months prior. Her fall in the grocery store resulted in the opening of the prior surgical wound that required surgical interventions to repair. The insurance company vigorously defended the case claiming no liability and that her injury pre-existed the fall.
The Plaintiff retained The Law firm of Brian Cunha and Associates after a prior law firm was unable to resolve her case. In April, 2018 a her case was successfully settled at Mediation within one year of our firm having the file.
