Major Retailer Fails to Repair Pothole, $515,000 Settlement

Property owners have a responsibility to maintain their premises. This includes repairing potholes and sidewalk defects. Our client was on an Orange County, NY job site when he was injured on the job. He was manning a trailer when he hit a pothole and was thrown from his seat to the ground. Only after our client was seriously injured did the property owner begin to take steps to repair the pothole. Our client suffered a serious lumbar injury in the fall which required multiple surgeries to repair. Attorney Ronald Rosenkranz settled this case for $515,000.
