Partner Jerry Baldino won an $875,000 settlement against the owner of a restaurant. Our client was a 67 year old Controller who tripped on a defective walking surface causing him to fall down a flight of exterior steps. Investigation revealed that the walkway leading up to the step had recently been repaired by the owner of the establishment. In the process, small portions of the tile walking surface were not replaced causing a change in elevation. Our client suffered a mild traumatic brain injury resulting in memory problems, headaches and change in personality. While he was able to return to work after approximately one month, he ultimately retired due to difficulties with concentration.
