Six-Figure Settlement Reached for 65-year-old Peruvian native for Slip and Fall Injury on Icy Sidewalk.

October 10th, 2018

Y.T., a Spanish-speaking 65-year-old native of Peru, was walking home from a beauty salon on a cold winter day when she slipped and fell on an icy sidewalk. Y.T. landed on her left side and immediately started to feel numbness, pressure, and very severe pain in her left arm. During her visit to the hospital, it was determined that Y.T. had sustained a fracture and would be needing surgery in her left wrist with inserted hardware.

This accident left Y.T. in a brace, sling, and in need of serious physical therapy. The accident not only brought upon physical pain; Y.T. experienced emotional struggles due to the inability to use her left hand. As a jeweler, Y.T. was no longer able to perform her job that required strength and dexterity and became unemployed. Y.T. was also no longer able to perform her hobbies such as yoga, bike riding, and going to the gym.

A close friend of Y.T. referred her to Hill & Moin who litigated her case in a way that Y.T. describes as “marvelously great”, indicating that the staff was very professional. Y.T. speaks kindly of the attorneys who took on her case, stating that they were very patient and exerted a lot of confidence throughout the process. Y.T. found her experience with Hill & Moin extremely satisfactory and appreciated the fact that “when you come to Hill & Moin, they don’t limit your time and pay attention to you fully.” The six-figure settlement awarded to Y.T., thanks to Hill & Moin, will be used towards the purchase of a new apartment.
