While working security at a Manhattan office building, our client slipped and fell on water left by the building’s maintenance staff. Since our client did not work directly for the building owner, we commenced a lawsuit against the owner who was responsible for maintenance. As a result of the fall, our client injured his neck and required surgery. The defense claimed the fall had nothing to do with the need for neck surgery since our client was 68 at the time of the fall. The case was settled at mediation by Trial Attorney Mark Becker.
