$200,000 Settlement - NY Trip and Fall on Defective Sidewalk

Parking Lot Premises Liability

Our client, an 81 year old woman, was injured when she tripped and fell on a broken and defective sidewalk abutting a commercial parking lot owned by large retail store. She sustained a left wrist fracture when she landed on her left wrist in an attempt to break her fall. The fracture was treated in an emergency room setting where it was casted.

She eventually underwent an open reduction internal fixation of the left wrist and post-operative physical therapy. The matter was on the trial calendar in Queens and settled by Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro & Halperin associate Michael Fitzpatrick at a private mediation for $200,000.
