Settlement: Case settled in favor of client in the 6 figures

Here the client had contracted to have her driveway redone with new interlocking pavers. A few days after they were installed, the client was walking to her car, parked on the street, when she slipped and fell on the newly redone driveway. It was claimed that the pavers were too slippery due to a sealer that had been applied. As a result of the incident, the client fractured her ankle, and hardware was installed. She was also out of work, and presented a lost wage claim. There were many technical issues involving the testing of the pavers, and whether or not the slip test machine accurately measured the “slipperyness” of the pavers.
