Slip & Fall in the Bronx Yields Six-figure Settlement

Howard Raphaelson
Partner, Attorney

The Bronx slip and fall lawyers at Raphaelson & Levine recently represented a young man who was injured due to uncleared ice on a walkway. With limited exception, The law requires property owners to clear snow and ice from the sidewalk within 4 hours of the end of a storm. Through expert weather testimony, we established the storm stopped over 9 hours before the fall.

Our client slipped tearing his lateral meniscus. The defendants argued vigorously that the injury pre-dated the fall and pointed to his two prior knee surgeries as well as the fact that as of two days before the fall he was still under care from his prior surgeon. We appeared at mediation and secured a six-figure settlement this week after several years of litigation.
