On June 6, 2009 a settlement of $600,000 was reached in for our client during mediation before mediator Peter Merani of Settlement System. Our client, a 44 year old police officer, sustained a torn meniscus, rotator cuff tear, and herniated disc all requiring surgery in a slip and fall accident at Ground Zero due to ice being allowed to accumulate on a temporary wooden inclined ramp, which caused ice to adhere to said surface despite diligent efforts to remove same and perform periodic inspections.
