Slip & Fall

After our client attended a party at her friend’s house in Baltimore, Maryland, she exited the home and walked down a set of steps to the street. As she stepped off the last step onto the street, her foot slipped on the edge of a slightly raised area placed along the street by the county in order to divert water from the property. As a result, she suffered a comminuted fracture. We retained an expert on street repairs and filed suit against the county for negligently placing the raised area at the end of the steps.

The county argued that the raised area was proper, that it was not the cause of our client’s fall, and that our client had been seen tripping earlier in the evening because of the shoes she was wearing. Nevertheless, we were able to settle the case prior to trial for $105,000.
