Client v. City of New York
Our Client was injured by stepping into a pothole surrounding a manhole cover. As a result, our Client suffered an avulsion fracture to his ankle that required three surgeries, as well as a shoulder injury that also required surgery. Due to the nature of our Client’s injuries, he was unable to return to job in the film industry. After hiring an expert, it was determined that the City of New York had improperly repaired the manhole in accordance with accepted engineering standards.
