$350,000.00 Recovery in Slip and Fall Accident Case

Slip and Fall Accident - Premises Liability.

WRSH attorney, Nicole Gill, obtained a settlement of $350,000.00 on behalf of a 22 year old woman who slipped and fell on an accumulation of snow and ice while ascending the exterior steps of the defendants’ residential building.

As a result of the accident, our client suffered significant injuries to her right ankle, which required surgical intervention and physical therapy, and which will ultimately lead to post-traumatic arthritis. Just prior to jury selection, Nicole was able to negotiate a settlement in the amount of $350,000.00 for our client’s past and future pain and suffering. Our theory was that the defendants were negligent in failing to properly remove the snow and ice and therefore failed to use reasonable care under the circumstances. Given the possible exposure the defendants faced, they opted to settle the case.
