Slip And Fall Case Settled For $500,000 Immediately Prior To Trial
On June 27 th, 2013, Personal Injury Attorney Dominic Addabbo settled a slip and fall case for our client, a 60 year old woman, against a contractor who was doing work for the City of New York. The Plaintiff drove to work and parked in an area which was recently excavated and then temporarily repaved. However, the new pavement was approximately one inch lower causing Plaintiff to lose her step and fall fracturing her leg in two places. While in the hospital, Plaintiff developed a MRSA Infection which cause additional hospitalization and necessitated surgery which left a serious scar on her stomach. Although the Defendant argued that the misleveling was minimal and not actionable, the personal injury and accident attorneys at Addabbo and Greenberg argued that the totality of the circumstances constituted a trap which caused the Plaintiff to fall. Dominic Addabbo was prepared to go to Trial in this matter when, immediately prior to Jury selection, the case settled for $500,000.00. Once again, preparation, knowledge of the law, along with dedication to our clients, resulted in an extremely favorable recovery.
