Man Awarded $600,000 for Curb Accident Which Caused a Fracture

This is a settlement for the Personal Injury lawsuit.

Philadelphia, PA: A man in his 60s who fractured his hip in a curb at a condominium complex in Holland, PA, has been awarded $600,000 in settlement of his lawsuit.

Jerry Gubin was helping his son move when his foot became caught in the curb, causing him to fall and sustain injuries. Consequently, he was unable to work or four months.

Expert witnesses called to testify at the trial said that the parking lot where this happened only had about 0.10 foot candles of illumination, whereas parking lots are required to have 0.60 foot candles of illumination. The lack of illumination would have contributed to the likelihood of an accident occurring.
