Slip & Fall

A woman retained our services after she fell into a pothole while crossing the street to get to her car in the District of Columbia. As a result of her fall, she required an ankle surgery, including the permanent placement of screws into her right ankle and extensive physical therapy. Our firm investigated her case and discovered that the city had been previously informed of the risk of the pothole by a neighbor. The District of Columbia denied that it was placed on notice of the pothole and claimed that a search of the 311 records revealed no complaints regarding the pothole. Despite this dispute, we filed suit and were able to win a $325,000 recovery for our client.
