Woman Receives $792,968 for Slip and Fall

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.

You don’t necessarily need injuries this serious to have a case against a business that didn’t maintain their premises, which resulted in you injuring yourself.

2 1/2 Years ago my life was turned upside-down. I called lawyer after lawyer that never cared to call me back until I called Steven Caya's office and they got back to me right away. When he said he would take my case it was such a sigh of relief. Steven and his team were there for me every step of the way after my accident and I never felt left out. They always kept me so informed! I'm hoping I will never need them again but if I did I would 100% go back! Thank you all so much for your care and support during such a rough time!!
