$500,000 for neck injury in slip-and-fall accident

$505,000 Settlement For Defective Traffic Light Case

Schulman Blitz, LLP settled a case for a retired man who slipped and fell in the stairway of an apartment building in Manhattan.

The man slipped on an oily substance and injured his neck. As a result of his injury, he underwent surgery consisting of a diskectomy and a cervical fusion. Following the neck surgery, the man developed several unrelated medical conditions, including kidney failure which requires him to be on dialysis three times a week.

The case was settled at a mediation shortly before the trial was scheduled to begin for $500,000.
