White Plains Worker Slips on Ice, $500,000 Settlement

Clearing ice and snow in winter months is not optional, property owners are required to ensure they clear ice and snow in a timely fashion. Our client was reporting to work on a White Plains, NY job site when she slipped and fell forward on an ice slab nearly an inch thick. Following the fall, our 43-year-old client was unable to raise her arms, unable to use her arms to lift of carry, and experienced ongoing weakness and pain in her arm, elbows, and shoulder. She eventually had to undergo surgery. Attorney Gustavo Alzugaray was able to hold the negligent property owner accountable and settled the case for $500,000.
