Trip-and-Fall Settles for $52,000

On 3/20/08, Plaintiff settled a case against a property management company, Kimco Realty Corporation, for $52,000 for a trip and fall that occurred when she stubbed her toe on a protruding portion of an uneven sidewalk located outside a Safeway store in Fairfax County, VA.

Plaintiff fractured her right elbow and left knee and had surgery on both and a follow-up surgery on her right elbow. These cases are very difficult for Plaintiffs to prevail in Virginia courts due to notice requirements and other legal hurdles.
