On February 6, 2012, our client went to pay her elderly mother’s rent check for her apartment on the Grand Concourse in the Bronx. After paying the rent, she began walking up the steps from the office to her car in order to return to work where she was employed at JP Morgan in client relationships. When she got to the top of the steps she tripped and fell on an uneven sidewalk slab, causing her to suffer severe injuries to her knee and shoulder. Her injuries required surgeries to both her knee and shoulder and caused her to miss many months of work. The defendant owner of the property vigorously contested responsibility and the case was litigated for four years. On the eve of trial Justin Blitz was able to successfully resolve our client’s case for $275,000.
