$202,500 Settlement for Slip and Fall on Black Ice
The firm represented a 63-year old woman who slipped and fell on black ice outside of her apartment building (commercial complex) one day after a snow event. Our client sustained a hip fracture requiring surgical intervention. Significant issues affected the settlement including our client’s failure to use her walker to ambulate at the time of the accident. She also admitted that at the time she fell the sidewalk was “generally clear of ice and snow” and that she slipped on a “thin layer” of ice.
