$410,000 Settlement For Slip And FallMay 2, 2019
Plaintiff while attempting to descend the concrete stairwell leading to the laundry room at her apartment complex, slipped and fell down the stairs due to a poorly illuminated stairwell. The existing sole overhead light bulb burned out the prior month. Many attempts were made by Plaintiff and other tenants to contact the complex superintendent, to request the repair, but these complaints were not acted upon for unknown reasons. Ultimately, Plaintiff underwent right ankle arthroplasty and right percutaneous Achilles lengthening and two-level cervical surgery with instrumentation and fusion.
The case settled on March 21, 2019 for $410,000.
