Burlington Incorporated Pays Injured Shopper $677,000 For Injuries
MIAMI – When a table display came crashing down upon a Palm Beach woman shopping at a Burlington store, a personal injury claim followed, which led to a federal judge ruling in her favor for $677,000 in compensation for the injuries she suffered. The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida ruled in her favor in the case which dates back to July 2016, after the victim was struck by several tables that resulted in extensive medical attention, spinal cord surgery, a probable future surgical intervention to repair damage to he knees, which prevents her from taking part in the recreational activities she was able to do prior to the accident. According to the court ruling, there was a breach of duty by not taking precautionary measures to prevent the injuries she suffered when the entire table display fell on her. The victim requested just over $215,000 in damages to cover medical expenses and loss of wages as well as $750,000 dollars for past, present, and future pain and suffering. In the end, the U.S district judge ordered Burlington Inc. to compensate the Premises Liability accident victim a total of $677,745 for her injuries and losses.
