$848,500 Settlement For Brooklyn Man Who Slipped And Fell On Poorly Shoveled, Icy Sidewalk

On Valentine’s Day in 2014, our client had finished his job as a construction worker and was returning to his apartment after buying flowers for his wife, when he slipped and fell on a poorly shoveled, icy sidewalk in front of his apartment building in Brooklyn.  As a result of the fall, he sustained multiple severe fractures to his elbow that required two surgeries and prevented him from continuing to work in the construction industry, which he had worked in for over twenty years.

Schulman Blitz, LLP retained a weather expert, a vocational rehabilitation expert, a life care planner and an economist, all in an effort to both prove the defendants’ negligence and establish the extent and severity of the damages that the injury caused to our client as well as his ability to work in the future.

At a private mediation one week before the trial was scheduled to begin, Schulman Blitz, LLP showed a film that we put together, which included video footage of the icy condition that caused the fall, and an audio recording of a witness statement dubbed over the video, as well as Google map images depicting the location of the incident.

After a very contentious litigation that lasted close to three years,  Justin Blitz, Esq. settled our client’s case for $848,500.00. Contact Blitz Law Group LLP today.
