$750,000 Recovery for Trip and Fall Head Injury in NY

69 Year Old Who Tripped and Fell and Suffered an Open Head Injury

The plaintiff was a 69 year old Greek immigrant who tripped and fell due to a raised cellar door lock hinge. The plaintiff fell head first into the corner of the defendant's building, requiring 45 stitches and 13 staples in his head to close the wound. Plaintiff missed three months of work as a tailor following the accident. The plaintiff returned to his job as a tailor but suffered traumatic brain injury symptoms and was diagnosed by plaintiff's expert as suffering from a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and traumatic dementia. The defendant contested the TBI claim and their expert found no TBI but instead malingering. WRSH associate, Michael Fitzpatrick, settled the case shortly after a nonbinding mediation for $750,000.
