We represented a woman who was on vacation in New York State when was struck in the face by a large patio umbrella. The umbrella had not been properly fastened to the base of the stand and flew out and struck our client with significant force as a result of a strong gust of wind.As a result of the incident, our client sustained severe trauma to her left eye with lacerations and bleeding. The umbrella also perforated her sinus cavity causing bleeding in her nose and the back of her throat.We sent a settlement demand to the property owner’s insurance company and were able to settle the case without litigation.
