Our client was walking up a driveway that was shared by 13 homes in Brooklyn. Ice had accumulated from an earlier storm and the property owners failed to clear it. As a result, he slipped and fell sustaining a tear to his quadriceps tendon.The property owners asked the judge to dismiss the lawsuit claiming that our client was solely responsible for the accident. In Kings County Supreme Court, our firm successfully argued on behalf of our client, and the judge denied the motion allowing the matter to proceed.
Personal injury lawyer Howard Raphaelson was able to secure our client an injury settlement of $156,000 during mediation.
