A New Jersey woman won a $522,000 settlement in her case against a local Dunkin Donuts, after sustaining injuries from tripping over a spike in the parking lot, her attorney told CNBC Tuesday.

Maria Marsala was carrying a tray of hot coffee when she encountered a dislodged curb stop outside a Dunkin Donuts in Highland Park, New Jersey in January of 2012, court documents said.

The case, which also named the property owner of the strip mall that contains several other stores, was slated to go to trial in late September.
