$95,000 Slip on Ice Causing Knee Injury Results in $95,000 Settlement
A man who slipped on ice in the parking lot of his office building and fractured his knee was awarded a $95,000 settlement. The landlord claimed that the parking lot was properly maintained and that it had no notice of any icy condition. Agreeing with its argument, a Supreme Court judge in Suffolk County, New York dismissed his case. Fighting on, the appeals lawyers at Sullivan & Brill appealed the decision to the Appellate Division. After receiving Sullivan & Brill's appellate brief, the insurance company acceded to Sullivan & Brill's settlement demand.
