We helped obtain a $1.5M settlement for a client who slipped and fell on a poorly shoveled sidewalk resulting in leg injuries requiring surgery.

The plaintiff walked along a sidewalk in front of a commercial building that had been mostly abandoned by the owner except for a small group of workers who maintained an office to wind down the business.

The defendant’s witness testified that it had no knowledge of the condition of the sidewalk on the date of the accident, or the days leading up to the accident, and was unable to refute the plaintiff’s testimony that the sidewalk contained a dangerous ice condition.

Expert meteorological evidence revealed a classic freeze-thaw-freeze weather pattern which caused the hazardous condition which led to the accident.
