Todd J. Leonard Law Firm Obtains $400,000 Settlement in Recent Slip and Fall Case
Denville, NJ (Law Firm Newswire) March 02, 2021 – After a woman slipped on an icy sidewalk, her New Jersey personal injury lawyers successfully settled her case through mediation.
The New Jersey personal injury lawyers at the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm recently settled a slip and fall claim involving a client who fell on an icy sidewalk in Blairstown, New Jersey. The firm’s client, a woman in her 50s, walked along an icy sidewalk between two businesses. The woman fell, suffering severe injuries to her shoulder, which required her to undergo reconstructive surgery.
When the woman reached out to the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm, founding partner Todd J. Leonard and Senior Litigation Associates, Paul G. Paravati, took the case. When the lawyers reached out to the two businesses located on either side of the sidewalk, both denied liability. Ultimately, the firm engaged in the mediation process with the insurance carriers for both businesses, settling the claim for $400,000.
Attorney Todd Leonard explained, “Under state law, businesses have an obligation to keep all accessible areas safe to the public. Among other things, this includes clearing snow or ice after a storm. When businesses ignore the duties they owe to the public, they put everyone at risk and should be held accountable for any injuries that stem from their negligence.”
