$410,000 Recovery in New York Defective Sidewalk Trip and Fall Accident

Trip and Fall Accident

WRSH associate, Michael Fitzpatrick, secured a settlement in the amount of $410,000.00 for a 55 year old native from the Ukraine who tripped and fell on a defective sidewalk fracturing her radius. This fracture did not require surgery.

The accident occurred in 2007, however, sometime in 2010 the plaintiff began treating for an aggravation of a pre-existing back condition. In 2010, the plaintiff underwent a lumbar fusion which her surgeon attributed to an aggravation of a pre-existing back condition. The defendants expert’s claimed that the back surgery was unrelated to the accident as evidenced by the absence of treatment for three years following the accident. The matter settled following jury selection in Kings County for $410,000.00.
