Case Synopsis:

A Bronx jury awarded Ms. Colon $2.25 million for a trip and fall accident.

Ms. Colon was caused to fall when she moved to the right to allow another pedestrian to pass, and her foot rolled to the outside due to the sidewalk being unlevel with the adjoining grass. Ms. Colon fractured her right ankle with resulting reflex sympathetic dystrophy, a permanent condition causing hypersensitivity to the slightest touch.

The jury found the defendant, New York Eye Surgery liable and awarded Ms. Colon $2,253,714.00 for her pain and suffering.
