Settlement for Slip and Fall Case could cost Denver $68K

 Posted on September 28, 2010 in Uncategorized

The city council of Denver will meet Monday night to determine "whether to pay a $68,500 settlement to Joan Siudzinski" who slipped on a patch of black ice at the city-owned Wellshire Golf Course in November of 2008. According to a story posted by The Denver Channel (7News), the lawsuit claims that the golf course staff failed to de-ice the sidewalk near the pro shop entrance, thus allowing a "dangerous" situation that caused Siudzinski's permanent shoulder injury. The lawsuit further claims that Siudzinski suffered loss of wages as well as "emotional pain and suffering" due to the fall.

According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), slip and fall accidents are the number 2 leading cause of injuries and Workers Compensation claims every year. They are the number 1 cause of accidents in homes, hotels, restaurants and public buildings. Some 25,000 people are injured from slip and fall accidents every day, over 9 million a year.

Many slip and fall accidents are due to no fault of the victim. As with the story above, such falls are the direct result of the conditions of the floor or ground surface where the accident has occurred. If you or someone you know has been injured due the neglected conditions of a floor or ground surface, you need to speak to an experienced Denver personal injury attorney who can assist you with all your legal options. You may be entitled to money from an insurance policy you are not aware of. You may want to file a complaint or lawsuit against those responsible for your fall. Greg Gold is a Colorado attorney who can help. Contact him today at 303-694-4653.
