On 7/17/07 a $175,000 Settlement was reached in the Supreme Court, Kings County before the Honorable Allen Hurkin-Torres for a 78-year-old pedestrian who tripped and fell on a cracked and uneven sidewalk. Plaintiff had sustained an intertrochanteric fracture of the right hip, which necessitated surgery. Prior thereto, Plaintiff was successful on appeal overturning a prior decision wherein Justice Solomon had dismissed the case on the basis that the defect was trivial and thus not actionable.
