The attorneys at Gill and Chamas have been representing injured slip and fall victims for over 20 years. During that time they have recovered multiple seven figure settlements for their injured clients. One of these settlements includes the case mentioned below:
A Roselle Park woman who tripped while hanging laundry to dry at her apartment complex accepted $2.9 million to settle a Union County suit against her landlord.
She tripped over a fragment from one of two T-shaped poles that supported a clothesline provided for tenants, cutting the top of her left foot and requiring 14 stitches to close the wound.
Her lawyer, Raymond Gill, a partner at Woodbridge’s personal injury law firm Gill & Chamas, says that one of the metal poles had broken about a year earlier and a replacement had been bought, but not installed. One side of the line was strung from the building’s fire escape.
During the next six months, she noticed a gradual but steady onset of symptoms in her left leg, including numbness, tingling in the lower leg and heightened sensitivity to pain, temperature and slight pressure, Gill says. In early 1999, a doctor at St. Barnabas Hospital in Livingston diagnosed her with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), a traumatically induced injury to the central nervous system.
