$425,000 Jury Verdict for NY Premises Liability Claim

Trip and Fall - Woman's Shoe Caught on Property Defect

Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro & Halperin, LLP attorney, Nicole Michelle Gill, recently obtained a $425,000 verdict for our client who tripped and fell when the tip of her shoe caught on a defect located on the defendant's property. Our client, a 72 year old retiree, was walking her granddaughter to the school bus when the accident occurred. She was caused to sustain a tear of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus of the left knee and other injuries. As a result, she required two arthroscopic surgeries on her left knee and wil require a total left knee replacement in the future. The defendant's attorney and examining physician argued that degenerative changes as well as plaintiff's prior 1996 accident caused her injuries. We proved that the defendant was negligent in failing to maintain its property in a reasonably safe condition.
