New Bedford, MA (PRWEB) December 7, 2009
The law firm of Dussault and Zatir settled a fall down accident claim for the amount of $100,000.00 plus $10,000.00 in medical coverage.
While exiting City Hall, a woman slipped on a wet step and fell down to the bottom granite step. Witnesses indicated that although the steps were wet, there were no warning signs. Upon investigation, it was discovered that a custodian had attempted to clean the steps moments before the client slipped.
Initially the woman believed she had only sustained a minor head injury and bruises to her arms and knees. The woman began suffering from severe headaches and presented at the local hospital with a chief complaint of confusion and headache. After a cat scan of her head, emergency brain surgery was performed. Findings concluded that the woman had Hypodense extra-axial collection of the right with significant mass effect and possible early trapping of the temporal horn of the left lateral ventricle. The law firm of Dussault and Zatir alleged that sole liability rested with the municipality, and both medical records and eyewitness accounts of the event, confirmed that the woman had struck her head in the fall and had sustained a chronic subdural hematoma also described as a “slow CNS bleed”.
