Slip & Fall
A 62 year old woman from Connecticut, visiting Rhode Island, fell on a defect in the area of a crosswalk striking her nose and causing a fracture. There was no surgery involved. Suit was filed by Karns & Kerrison after notice was given against the city involved and also against the contractor and subcontractors who were working on the road. After suit was filed and the matter went to arbitration, Karns & Kerrison settled the case for $57,500.00 against two of the four defendants.
