Settlement For Woman Who Slipped and Fell on Wet Grass
Attorney Howard Kitay obtained a $100,000.00 settlement for a 48 year-old woman who slipped and fell on wet grass while visiting a friend’s house. Plaintiff ‘s X-rays revealed a fracture dislocation of the right ankle, which was originally treated by placing it in a splint, and one week later an open reduction internal fixation surgery of plaintiff’s right ankle was performed.
Attorney Howard Kitay filed a lawsuit in San Diego Superior Court, East County Division, and demanded the homeowner’s policy limit, however, the insurance company alleged the accident was plaintiff’s fault and refused to offer any money to settle the claim.
Mr. Kitay prepared for trial, but prior to the proceedings, the case settled and the insurance company paid the $100,000.00 policy limit to plaintiff.
