A 49 year-old man employed by the NYC Housing Authority and earning $46,000 per annum, slipped on ice while stepping from a curb. This occurred two days after a 26 inch blizzard. Our client fractured both bones in his lower leg. After surgery to repair the fractures with a plate and screws two screws were eventually removed and after three and a half months, our client returned to work on a full-time basis. Suit was brought against the City of New York for failure to maintain the crosswalk and curb in a reasonably safe condition and the case was settled for $100,000.
