Superior Court Litigation Results in $275,000 Recovery

After aggressive litigation, Marasco & Nesselbush partner Joseph P. Marasco recently achieved a $275,000 recovery for a client. The plaintiff broke his arm badly, requiring surgery and suffering permanent limitations as a result of a fall while entering his apartment. Our client fell on wet paint spilled by a contractor. Unfortunately, the property management corporation failed to exercise reasonable care in monitoring the work of the contractor. The defendants initially refused to compensate our client, arguing that he fell due to his own carelessness and wet shoes.

As in many slip and fall cases, the credibility of the plaintiff and key witnesses were crucial to the outcome. In this case, our client was a young college graduate whose testimony was sincere. Partner Joseph P. Marasco uncovered and demonstrated numerous inconsistencies in the defendants’ testimony.

Ultimately, both the insurance company for the property management corporation and the painting contractor were compelled to compensate our client.
While our firm strives to achieve a prompt and equitable settlement of all cases, some accidents require court litigation and advocacy to achieve outstanding results. As always, when necessary, Marasco & Nesselbush is willing to go the distance, in or out of court, to achieve justice for our clients.
