Bronx Trip and Fall Accident Lawyer: $1.95 Million


On December 12, 2007, our 52-year-old male client was walking through the intersection of Beck Street and Leggett Avenue in Bronx when he fell. As he was stepping onto a curb, his left leg sank into a hole next to a sewer’s catch basin. Due to the accident, our client fractured his left leg and underwent open reduction and internal fixation procedures two days after the accident. He was hospitalized for about two weeks and received about 18 months of physical therapy that was administered two to three times a week.

After thorough investigation, Adam Handler discovered that the City Of New York had received prior complaints about the defective road condition that caused our client’s serious injury. City employees from the Department of Transportation and the Department of Environmental Protection even visited the site and ordered repairs to be done, but repairs were never completed.

The City attorneys argued that the road defect was an open, obvious condition that should have been easily avoided and offered $150,000 to our client. The Case Handler argued that the hole, having been there for so long, accumulated debris therefore making it impossible to see.

During the trial, Adam Handler cross examined the City witnesses and just prior to the Plaintiff taking the stand, successfully negotiated a $1.95 million dollar settlement!
