SPBMCC Partner Liza Milgrim Secures $440,000 for 93-Year-Old Slip-and-Fall Victim
On Sept. 2, 2022, SPBMCC Partner Liza Milgrim secured a $440,000 settlement for a woman who slipped and fell on ice outside a senior center.
93-Year-Old Woman Suffers Injury After Slipping on Ice
In February 2022, a few days following a large snowfall, a 93-year-old woman was in a van owned by the senior center. When she arrived at the senior center, she slipped and fell on ice that was on the walkway, fracturing her hip and requiring open reduction and internal fixation surgery (ORIF).
The woman, who previously lived independently and was in good health, took a hard fall that changed her life completely. Not only did she need surgery to deal with her injuries, but she can no longer live independently and is forced to move into an assisted living center.
