Woman slips, falls at school; files lawsuit

In our last post, we talked about a slip and fall incident in New York that occurred because a property manager failed to properly clear away snow during the winter. That built up an embankment of snow near the sidewalk, which eventually had some runoff that refroze on the sidewalk, leading to the woman in the story slipping and falling.

Today we have a different story that occurred here in New York, and even though the circumstances of the story are a little different, the result is the same: a victim of a slip and fall suffered serious and life-changing injuries.

The woman in this case worked on behalf of a non-profit. It is an outreach program for high school students. The 59-year-old woman went in to a high school in Staten Island and slipped and fell on a wet surface in the school. She suffered back injuries that required two surgeries and she sued the city and the Department of Education for the slip and fall. Her case was recently settled for $850,000.

Many people may mistakenly think that slip and falls are minor incidents that people can just get right back up from -- literally. However, many slip and fall incidents leave people with terrible injuries that last a long time. In some cases, the victims never truly recover. if you have been injured in a slip and fall, please consult with an attorney as soon as possible.
