$100,000 Settlement for an Ice Skating AccidentDecember 1, 2016
Christopher L. Musmanno, Esq., Chair of the Personal Injury Department and Certified Civil Trial Attorney with the law firm of Einhorn, Harris, Ascher, Barbarito & Frost, PC in Denville, NJ, announces a $100,000.00 settlement for an ice skating accident.
In February 2013, Plaintiff was ice skating during an open public skate. Plaintiff was hit by another skater, falling to the ice, landing
with her entire body weight onto the left side of her face. As a result of the incident, Plaintiff sustained a left-sided orbital fracture requiring open reduction and internal fixation surgery with the implantation of three (3) prosthetic plates to reconstruct the orbital socket, fixated by numerous self-tapping and self-drilling screws. She also sustained scar tissue entrapment of her left eye and a right paracentral disc herniation in her cervical spine at C5-6 with bilateral femoral stenosis.
Plaintiff did not want to proceed to trial, therefore, due to the issue of liability, the case was settled at a Settlement Conference for the total amount of $100,000.
