$350,000 for trip-and-fall on sidewalk defect

Schulman Blitz, LLP settled our client’s case at mediation for $350,000 for injuries he sustained when he tripped and fell on a defective sidewalk in front of a building on West 86th Street in Manhattan. Our client was carrying his grandson on his shoulders when the accident happened and he sustained severe injuries which required surgery to his ankle and his knee. The accident was caught on video by the building’s exterior cameras which Schulman Blitz, LLP was able to retrieve and use to help prove our client’s case against the building’s insurance company.
