BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — A lawsuit by a Black Rock woman who tripped on a cracked sidewalk three years ago in Bridgeport and then sued, won $416,000 in court last week, according to the Connecticut Post.

Superior Court jurors agreed with Carol Hoffman, 74, who was hurt in the fall, that the city needs to repair many of its broken sidewalks, said the Connecticut Post.

Hoffman had been walking on Rowsley Street when she tripped and fell, breaking her left arm and injuring her nose, face, upper torso and knees, added the Connecticut Post.
