Our team at Leav & Steinberg LLP is pleased to report a recent result for our client, a 50-year-old male waiter who slipped and fell on ice in New York in front of a multi-family home.
The incident was unwitnessed and unreported to the property owner.
Our client went home after the fall and did not go to the emergency room until later in the evening. He was then diagnosed with a non-dominant wrist fracture, which was surgically repaired with plates and screws. He had approximately four months of physical therapy.
Overall, he made a great recovery, although he was left with some limitations.
Battling the Courts
The defendants of this case argued that the weather was not freezing on the date of loss and that the alleged patch of ice could not have formed. But when our client chose our law firm to help his case, Senior Associate Ricardo Martinez resolved the 2021 accident for $400,000 at mediation prior to the completion of depositions.
This client is only one of many whom we’ve been able to help get full and complete justice for a personal injury in New York.
