Injury Law Center's Wins Big Slip and Fall Settlement
The Injury Law Center is happy to report a substantial settlement in the amount of $95,000 on behalf of a hard working Pelham woman who was injured when she slipped on black ice in front of a Chinese food restaurant.
Attorney Russo reported “back in February of 2016, our client went to a Chinese food restaurant to pick up a take-out diner order. She slipped and fell on an accumulation of black ice which had formed in the parking lot from a prior snow fall. Although the parking lot had been plowed, it had not been treated with preventative ice melt.
Our client heard her ankle audibly ‘pop’ – that was a displaced tibia fracture which required an open reduction and internal fixation surgery to properly re-align the bone.”
Attorney Russo remarked “these snow and ice cases are notoriously difficult in New England. Notwithstanding, our firm has enjoyed a great deal of success with these cases because we know how to present them to insurance adjusters and juries.”
