Frekhtman & Associates settles trip and fall for $425,000.00
An elderly man in his mid 80’s tripped and fell over a box left under a pool table at a senior citizen care center. He sustained a fracture of his hip requiring surgery. He retained Frekhtman & Associates to represent him for this serious personal injury case. The firm filed a lawsuit, conducted discovery, and prepared the matter for trial. Defendants denied liability arguing that the plaintiff leaned forward too far while playing pool, which caused him to fall on his side. Recently, on the eve of trial, the matter was amicably settled for $425,000. The lawsuit was brought in Queens County Supreme Court in New York State.
