48 Year Old Woman Severly Injured


$2.5 million settlement for a 48-year-old woman who was already totally physically disabled prior to her fall due to chronic hypertension, vascular disease, and end stage renal failure. She sustained a subdural hematoma requiring surgery when she slipped and fell using an interior concrete stairwell at her Section 8 Housing building on the South Side of Chicago due to its lack of lighting, missing handrail, and garbage on the surface of the steps. This case settled after a week of trial in an amount five times what was initially offered to settle the case immediately before trial.
