Rosenberg & Rodriguez PLLC

$100,000.00 dollar settlement obtained for an elderly lady who tripped and fell on a raised portion of a city sidewalk and sustained a fractured wrist. The City of New York denied liability and payment based on their claim that the City had not received prior complaints of the broken sidewalk. The City, relying on a notation in the plaintiff’s hospital records, claimed that the plaintiff fell because she “slipped” on ice and not because she tripped on the broken sidewalk. Notwithstanding the City’s position, R&R continued with the case and ultimately secured a $100,000.00 settlement on behalf of the plaintiff.
