Todd Drayton Slip and Fall Settlement

Petra Vavra Settlements
- We represented a woman who slipped on ice in her own condominium complex, suffering some soft tissue low back injuries and a knee injury requiring arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn meniscus. Defendant condo complex argued that Plaintiff had been aware of the icing issue due to freezing precipitation and should have utilized the de-icing materials provided outside her doorway. The case settled for $100,000.
- Our client became intoxicated in a bar and decided to walk home. He was struck by at least 2 motor vehicles while crossing a 6-lane highway against a red light not within a crosswalk. He was not employed and provided no monetary support to any individuals. The case settled for $181,000.
- We represented a client who underwent a below the knee amputation for uncontrolled diabetes 3 months prior to the accident precipitating the lawsuit. He also suffered from kidney failure and required routine dialysis. Subsequent to the surgical amputation, he underwent 3 months’ in-patient rehabilitation before being released home. 2 days after discharge, our client requested medical transportation for his routine dialysis appointment. While being moved on to the stretcher, he slipped off the stretcher and reopened the surgical wound. He required and additional weeklong hospital stay and an additional 3 months’ in-patient rehabilitation. The case settled for $240,000.
