In February 2018, Feldman, Kleidman, Coffey & Sappe LLP’s (FKC&S) 67-year-old client, a retired teacher and resident of Somers, NY, went to dinner with some friends in White Plains, NY. As she was crossing the roadway in front of her friend’s home, she tripped and fell. Utility work had been done about a year prior and the company that was hired to dig and then backfill the trench left it in an uneven and dangerous condition. She suffered a rotator cuff tear and underwent surgery. Steven H. Cohen obtained a $100,000 settlement for the client following depositions.
