Earlier this week, a federal jury ruled in favor of Pennsylvania’s Barbara Ferguson, who said she injured herself at work after a slip and fall incident with a box that was used as a makeshift doorstop.
Ferguson was awarded $792,968.16 and four defendants were found to have been negligent in the case.
While working at the Pathmark on Franklin Mills Boulevard, Ferguson contended she was injured after she tripped over a box that was being used to prop open a large office door at the grocery store.
As a result of her fall, Ferguson claimed she sustained a number of serious injuries, such as:
- Dislocating her right shoulder, and fractured it in four places.
- Sustaining a left knee fracture
- Suffering from right wrist carpal tunnel syndrome
- Suffering from various neck and back injuries
She also contended that she suffered from depression as a result of her injuries.
