Settlement For Client That Slipped On Ice

Our client was injured when she slipped and fell at the property where she rents. The cause of the fall was ice. She sustained a fractured toe and needed to take an ambulance to the hospital. She eventually came under the care of an orthopedic doctor. She needed to use crutches and a boot.

We brought a claim for negligence against the property owner. A claim was set up with the property owner’s insurance company in order for our client to receive compensation for her personal injuries. The claim asserted against the property owner was that it failed to reasonably clear the ice that had accumulated.

After extensive negotiations the claim settled without having to file a lawsuit.
