TT&H Attorney Rebecca Sember Izsak wins defense verdict for national chain retail store.
January 18, 2019
In November of last year, TT&H Attorney Rebecca Sember Izsak won a defense verdict in connection with a binding summary jury trial in Westmoreland County. The Plaintiff was shopping at a retail chain store and was apparently choosing a plastic storage container from a shelf when a stack of large plastic totes fell and struck her on the leg. The Plaintiff suffered a hematoma to the leg, which then developed into a blood clot, requiring debridement and wound care over a period of six months. In her suit against the store, the plaintiff claimed that the totes were improperly stored. She produced expert evidence that the totes were dangerously stacked and displayed, which was the cause of the accident. Arguing that the totes were displayed for sale on the lowest possible shelf, Attorney Sember Izsak convinced the jury that there was no negligence on the part of the store.
