Dubuque v. Cumberland Farms

The firm brought suit for wrongful death against Cumberland Farms, arising from the tragic death of a wife and mother who was struck down in the doorway of a Cumberland Farms store in November, 2010. The case is the firm's third against Cumberland Farms for death or catastrophic injury resulting from failure to protect pedestrian customers from vehicular traffic with the use of barriers between the pedestrian walkways in front of the stores and the nose-in parking spaces.

At trial in February, 2016, a jury found Cumberland Farms to be negligent and grossly negligent in connection with the incident, and awarded the family $32 million.
