Colombia County, NY Our client, a 43-year-old wife, mother of three, and registered nurse, was parked in a grocery store parking lot. After putting her daughters and groceries in the car, she walked across the aisle to return her cart to the corral. As she walked back over the same path to her vehicle, the plaintiff slipped and fell on the ice fracturing her ankle. As a result of the injuries, she missed 10 weeks of work, lost wages, and accumulated medical bills. The defendant, the property manager, said he had inspected the lot less than an hour before, had not seen any ice, and deemed the lot “reasonably safe.” However a store employee who came to the plaintiff’s assistance following the fall confirmed there was ice under the plaintiff.
