Slip & Fall

A 69 year old woman fell on a sidewalk owned by a city in Rhode Island. She had neglected to do any of the notices that are required on a case like this to sue the city, and came into the Karns & Kerrison long after the notice period had expired. Because the city had a city ordinance that required landowners to keep the sidewalks clear of ice and snow adjacent to their property, suit was filed against the landowner. The injury consisted of a fractured ankle with surgery. After suit was filed against the owner of the property and depositions were done, the case was settled for $85,000.00.
