$3,500,000 – Slip and Fall – Snow and Ice – Leg Fractures

Plaintiff, a 53 y/o custodian, was walking along the sidewalk when he slipped on a patch of ice in front of the defendant’s premises. Plaintiff was taken by EMS to the hospital where he was diagnosed with a severe fracture of his right knee. Plaintiff underwent several surgeries to repair the fracture and was later admitted to the hospital to treat an infection. Plaintiff ultimately had a complete right knee fusion. Defendants argued that the accident did not happen as the plaintiff described and plaintiff’s poor result stemmed from underlying diabetes and kidney failure. The case was resolved by HKD partners Jonathan Damashek and Jordan Hecht.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
