$ 605,000 Mediation - Premises Liability- Parking Lots Speed Bump Not Visible to Shopper

A 47-year-old insurance underwriter dropped her car off to be repaired at a discount auto repair shop that is located in Brooklyn, New York. When she returned to pick up her vehicle, the woman was directed to where she could get it. As she headed over to her car, she tripped over a speed bump and fell. The injured woman claimed that she sustained fractures to her teeth resulting in tooth loss and other dental problems. She sued the property’s owner and its business entities. The woman alleged that the defendants were negligent in their repair and/or maintenance of the parking lot, that they negligently failed to warn of the speed bump, and that their negligence created a dangerous condition.
