PERSONAL INJURY LAW: Superior Court Reduces $880k Pain And Suffering Award To $60k

The plaintiff’s decedent slipped and fell on ice, and then died after approximately several hours before she was discovered face down on a sidewalk at her apartment complex.

The jury’s award was found excessive and shocked the court’s conscience.  The amount was reduced to $60k and then further reduced to $42k to account for a 30% contributory negligence finding.  If the remittitur was not accepted a new trial was to be held.

Estate of Marshall v. Norwalk Housing Auth., (March 31, 2015)
