On a spring day in April, our client was walking her dog when she tripped and fell on a raised section of the sidewalk. She suffered a fractured arm and underwent two surgeries.
Hupy and Abraham argued that the tree next to the sidewalk shaded the sidewalk and our client did not see the raised potion of the sidewalk. There was a dispute between the city and the property owner as to who was legally responsible for maintaining the sidewalk.
Attorney Jenna Cruise brought in a $95,000 settlement.
