In a case Stewart Casper handled, a Stamford, CT jury returned a verdict of nearly $600,000 reduced by 30% comparative negligence for Flora Smith against the owner of an upscale retail and office building along fashionable Greenwich Avenue in Greenwich, CT. Ms. Smith was on her way to an appointment shortly before 9 A.M., when she slipped and fell on ice on a public sidewalk that had formed from runoff from a pile of snow created by snow removal efforts at 200 Greenwich Avenue. Ms. Smith sustained a tri-malleolar of her right ankle, requiring open reduction and internal fixation. She subsequently underwent two arthroscopic ankle surgeries for chronic degenerative changes and was forced to curtail a very active recreational life. Her medical bills were approximately $60,000, and she did not sustain any lost wages. The defendant disclaimed responsibility for the melting snow, blaming an abutting property owner and natural conditions. Prejudgment interest will add approximately $160,000 to the judgment.
