$200,000 Settlement for Woman Who Slipped and Fell on Ice

On January 20, 2019, our client, a 28-year-old woman with a master’s degree in journalism, was walking home from the gym heading eastbound on East 73rd Street in Manhattan when she slipped and fell on a patch of ice.  The ice emanated from the service entrance to a building and extended to the curb line. It was caused by someone that had removed leaking bags of trash from the building, which froze over, thereby creating the icy patch.

When our client slipped and fell on the ice, she immediately felt pain in the upper part of her left arm.  A good Samaritan came to her aid and called an ambulance to the scene. Our client was taken to the emergency room at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center where X-rays confirmed a fracture to her humerus bone.  Because the fracture was so bad, it required her to undergo a surgery that consisted of an open reduction and internal fixation surgery where 2 plates and multiple screws were inserted. 

Blitz Law Group brought a lawsuit on our client’s behalf against the owner and management company of the building for creating the dangerous condition that caused our client to fall. While in the course of the litigation, and during the height of the Coronavirus pandemic, Stephanie Mastrocola, Esq. was able to procure a settlement for our client in the amount of $200,000.
