This claim stemmed from a sidewalk slip and fall on ice which occurred in the aftermath of several snow and ice events in the City of Boston. The client suffered a leg fracture which did not require surgical intervention. Suit was filed in the case and discovery revealed that the contractor, for the apartment building where the fall occurred, had failed to adequately treat the ice and snow which had accumulated on the sidewalk in the previous week. Statements were also obtained from witnesses regarding the condition of the sidewalk at the time of the fall. The case settled after considerable negotiations.
