Injury Law Center's Wins Big Slip and Fall Settlement

Wet Floor Sign 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.”

Client Reviews
After my accident I was in so much pain and so confused that I didn't know where to go, so I contacted the Injury Law Center. Joe would sit and he would listen and talk to me and hear what I was saying and what was really going on with me. He explained everything. It really made a difference and gave me a peace of mind. I knew that he knew me well enough to take care of my best interests. He heard the story behind everything and made sure that the insurance company had to take action. Deb Brosnan
If someone I cared for was going to be going through something like this I would definitely recommend Injury Law Center as your first point of reference. My case went on for a very long time, over a year, and we were on very good terms the entire time. Attorney Russo came to visit me several times in the hospital and brought me things to do in rehab. They were very supportive the entire time. Injury Law Center was able to exceed my expectations and I am able to live comfortably without having to work. Valerie
I had a car accident that affected my business and my ability to deal with insurance companies was very difficult. Joe stayed the course and we were offered very fair compensation.I think it was because of Joe and the hard work of the team. It was a very long trial but it turned out to be in our favor which we were very happy about. Mat Morello
