A $240,000 settlement was obtained by the New York City based personal injury law firm Antin, Ehrlich and Epstein for a woman who slipped and fell in an elevator in an NYC Housing Authority apartment building.The elevator floor was covered with urine, making it increasingly slick and therefore hazardous to anyone riding within it. This New York City Housing Authority apartment building failed to fix the situation despite being made aware of it. This made them legally liable for the woman’s injury within their premises.
The woman suffered a rotator cuff tear, which required extensive surgical repair as well as painful physical therapy and a significant amount of recovery time. The personal injury attorneys at the NYC law firm of Antin, Ehrlich and Epstein successfully proved the liability of this New York City Housing Authority apartment building, and were thus able to secure a $240,000 settlement. More importantly, they made sure that the woman was generously compensated for the ordeal forced upon her by the negligence of the apartment building.
