A 77-year-old woman purchased six bottles of wine packaged in a paper wine carrier that broke upon removal from her car, causing the bottles to shatter on her driveway. The glass caused severe lacerations on the woman’s ankle, requiring 32 stitches. It was later discovered that her Achilles tendon had been severed. The woman underwent an Achilles reconstruction but continues to suffer from pain that prevents her from participating in activities she once enjoyed. The defendant, the grocery store that sold the wine, continues to make negotiations difficult, and Hodes Milman settled the case for $92,500.
