Laura Goldberg, an elderly widow living Flatbush, Brooklyn, tripped and fell on a sidewalk on Kings Highway while Con Edison was running cables and doing other work. There were insufficient warning signs and protective barriers to warn pedestrians and to prevent injuries.
As a result, Laura sustained fractured teeth requiring extensive dental reconstruction.
We obtained a verdict against Con Ed for $261,500. Although the trial court set aside the verdict on Con Ed’s post-trial motion, we were able to get the award reinstated on appeal.
