Slip and Fall in the Bronx yields six figure settlement

Home / Blog / Slip and Fall in the Bronx yields six figure settlement

The firm represented a young man who slipped and fell in the Bronx due to uncleared ice. With limited exception The law requires property owners to clear snow and ice from the sidewalk within 4 hours of the end of the 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 a mediation and secured a six figure settlement this week after several years of litigation.
