Faraci Lange Senior Counsel, Joseph A. Regan, recently resolved a slip and fall case for a Geneva, NY resident who tripped over a metal slat in a hotel she was staying at and sustained several injuries. The metal slat, which divided the older-built part of the hotel with the newer part, was 2/3 inches in width and was about the length of a hallway. When she tripped on the slat, she fell forward and hit the right side of her head, eye, and upper forehead on a fire door, causing significant indentation on her forehead as well as a hematoma to her right eye and optic cyst. The slip and fall claim was successfully resolved for the client's personal injuries.
