$275,000 Settlement – Hotel Fails to Remove Ice

Our client, a 25-year-old Newburgh resident, was walking through a hotel parking lot when she fell and slipped on ice. The owners of the hotel failed to properly salt or sand the parking lot, creating a dangerous situation. Our client sustained broken bones, a dislocated fibula and torn ligament which required surgery with hardware (plates and 16 screws). Attorneys Brian Acard and Elyssa Fried-De Rosa were able to settle the case for $275,000.
