Shopper vs. Large Retail Store

Case Conclusion Date: 01.24.2013

Practice Area: Personal Injury

Outcome: Trial Victory $100,000

Description: In this premises liability and negligence case, Client was shopping for a TV at Costco. She was standing in front of a display of large TV's. A store employee was showing an adjacent TV to another set of shoppers and while handling the TV, knocked another TV on to Client's shoulder and arm. Client's shoulder required surgery. This case was won at trial. I was co-counsel in the case with my father Barry Regar. The employee who caused the accident didn't take responsibility and changed her testimony when I cross-examined her during trial. The jury believed that Costco should have taken better care to prevent heavy TV's from falling on their patrons.
