Two days after a snowstorm the parking lot was still a mess at an apartment complex in Beacon, New York. Plowing is not enough when there are large patches of ice where cars park. The apartment management company choose not to salt or sand the ice. Our 45 year old client was walking between two cars where untreated ice was under a thin coat of snow. When he stepped on the snow, the ice caused him to fall and break his arm. The break was so bad it required surgery and his bones are now supported by a metal rod. Fortunately our client was able to return to work after a few weeks, but he will be at risk of developing arthritis. We were able to settle the case at mediation for $210,000. The case was handled by Senior Trial Partner George M. Levy, Managing Attorney David Gross and Case Manager Lynn P.
