Settlement Of Case Involving Injuries From Collapsed Restaurant Bench
Our client, a young woman who went to a restaurant for brunch with her family, sat at the table and the old bench upon which she was seated collapsed. Our client was seated with her legs folded underneath the bench. So, when the bench collapsed, the force came down directly on her legs and knees under her. She underwent injections in the knee.
On behalf of our client, we alleged that the bench was defective and that the restaurant maintained the bench in a negligent manner. We were able to avoid much litigation on this one. The case settled early on for a confidential sum. And, in case one wonders, our client is a very slender, young woman.
