$315,000 Settlement for Slip and Fall
- Date: Summer 2012
- Attorney: David M. Fried
- Settlement: $315,000
- Practice Areas: Premises Liability
David Fried represented a man who tripped over construction debris in the parking lot of a supermarket and injured his knee. Approximately 1 year later, he had a knee replacement. The defense claimed that because he was a large man and had significant arthritis in his knee, that the fall was not the cause of the need for the knee replacement. Despite these difficult issues, David Fried was able to settle this claim for $315,000.
