$500,000 Settlement in York County, PA (Slip, Trip, and Fall Accident)

$500,000.00 settlement in York County for a man who broke his ankle when he fell from the second floor balcony of his rented apartment in York, PA. Our client had lived in the apartment for nearly 2 years, during which time the balcony was in such disrepair that he used it only once. The defense initially denied the claim, arguing our client “assumed the risk” of falling when he walked out onto the balcony knowing it was inherently dangerous. This settlement was a featured story in Pennsylvania Law Weekly and Verdict Search: Pennsylvania.
