In 2005 a man slipped and fell on commercial property in the Bronx due to a slushy, icy sidewalk. The lawsuit claimed the property owners were negligent in removing the snow and ice causing the man to slip and fall, breaking vertebrae in his back and injuring his shoulder, all resulting in him being unable to work. The case has finally been settled after a two-week trial, with the man receiving a $750,000 settlement.
