Winter Woes…Parking Lot Slip and Fall: Victim Gets $290,000 Settlement

Posted by Francis M. Smith on Fri, Jan 12, 2018

In a New Jersey winter, one day we live in Arctic cold and the next it’s in the high 30s. Everything melts only to re-freeze when the temperatures plummet again at night. Add to that a leaky gutter and you have all the elements for a slip and fall accident.

Such was the case for one client who fell at the condominium complex where she was renting an apartment.

Fractures to Lower Leg Caused by Slip on Ice Settles for $290,000

By Francis M. Smith

Frank Smith recently resolved a case in which he represented a gentleman who parked at a commercial parking lot on his way to work. The parking lot owner was aware that patrons would be coming in to the lot, knew that run off from a snowfall several days earlier would melt in the subsequent warmer weather and then freeze overnight, when temperatures went below freezing, and that in the morning, there would be ice on the blacktop where patrons would be walking.

Motorcycle Crash Injuries Settled for $465,000

Posted by Francis M. Smith on Wed, May 25, 2016

By Francis M. Smith

A $465,000 settlement was reached recently for a client that was seriously injured in a motorcycle
accident. The client was injured while riding as a passenger when the motorcycle was driven into the
street from a parking lot. Unfortunately, a car was coming down the road at the same time. A crash ensued and the passenger on the bike was thrown over the car. The passenger was airlifted from the scene of the accident and underwent emergency surgery, which placed plates and screws in both an arm and a leg to stabilize multiple serious fractures. My client was left with a lot of medical bills and some limitation of movement and pain at the fracture sites. The amount of the settlement reflects the seriousness of the injuries.
