$620,000 Settlement for Slip and Fall

The firm represented a 50-year-old man who sustained serious injuries when he slipped and fell on ice while leaving his place of employment. Liability was hotly disputed, as there was a severe weather storm for many hours prior to the incident, and the storm was still ongoing during the incident. The firm was able to establish that the landscaper who was at the location had salted prior to the incident but had not done an adequate job in salting or in crushing up the ice after the salt was spread. The case resolved against the landscaper and the property owner, on a non-delegable duty theory, for a total of $620,000.
