Monmouth Jury recently awarded $3.2M to a slip and fall victim who suffered a hip injury after slipping on an icy walkway at the Jackson Premium Outlets.

According to the case records, the defendants had ignored a leaky soffit which required an immediate fix; this caused the plaintiff a hip fracture with three screws to set the bone in place. Treating medical professionals removed the screws later and performed hip replacement surgery as the plaintiff experienced continuous pain. However, the surgery was not helpful, and the plaintiff was unable to return to work.

The trial, held before Judge Lucas, concluded with the jury agreeing with plaintiff attorney's arguments. The jury awarded $3.2 million to the plaintiff, which included $2.75 million for pain and suffering, $373,580 for lost income, and $100,000 for loss of consortium. The damages awarded by the jury totaled $3,223,580 which will be reduced by 15% due to the plaintiff's comparative negligence. To include the medical lien, which totals $186,865.40, a post-judgment hearing will be conducted.
