Settlement For Man Struck by Falling Box in Tool Store
Attorney Howard Kitay obtained a $1,010,000.00 settlement for a 41 year-old man who was struck by a falling box while shopping in a tool store in east San Diego. The plaintiff sustained a bruise to his brain.
The owner of the east San Diego tool store originally claimed that plaintiff assumed the risk of injury when plaintiff went to the aid of a store employee who lost his balance on a ladder and offered $500,000.00 to settle the claim. The $500,000.00 settlement offer was rejected. Less than thirty days before trial, the tool store settled plaintiff’s case for $1,010,000.00.
