Lawlor Winston, LLP Partner Anthony B. White Obtains Confidential Settlement in Capitani v. K-Mart


Gail Capitani was a business invitee at K-Mart when she slipped on laundry detergent leaking from an over-loaded pallet display. Ms. Capitani suffered severe back injuries which necessitated a surgical laminectomy with dorsal column stimulator implant for pain control.  The implant failed, and was removed in a subsequent back surgery.


“This was a case of clear negligence on the part of K-Mart,” said Anthony White. “Ms. Capitani’s injuries were catastrophic, and K-Mart made the smart business decision to settle before going to a jury.”


The parties settled for a confidential amount prior to trial.
