$175,000.00 Settlement for 16 Year Old Boy Who Slipped and Fell on Ice on the Driveway of the Premises His Family Was Renting

On January 5, 2009, a 16 year old boy was walking down the driveway of a two-family residence that was owned by the defendant landlord in order to catch the bus for school, when he was caused to slip and fall on ice that had accumulated in the driveway, causing him to fall to the pavement where he sustained a right ankle fracture, among other injuries. The plaintiff was required to undergo surgery on his right ankle, specifically an open reduction and internal fixation of the right ankle fracture, as well as two subsequent surgeries to remove the hardware from his right ankle. Suit was instituted in Waterbury Superior Court against the defendant landlord and the case settled for $175,000.00, shortly before trial.

Client Reviews
Attorney Foley spent 8 long years as my lawyer, during that time he was my advocate, my friend, and above all an amazing lawyer. I wanted to write this review because in most cases lawyers are concerned with their payday, but not Michael Foley, though he was able to get me an amazing settlement, he became like part of my family, truly advocating for the best medical care during the long process. MIchael is an absolute Bulldog when it comes to protecting his clients, if you need someone in your corner, who won’t ever give up on your case, and actually listens to your needs, then look no further..
