Our 11-year-old client attended a dance studio in Beacon New York for years, taking numerous classes there. In September 2016, she had just been given a costume for an upcoming recital and was attempting to bring it to her mother. As she was walking towards the front door of the studio, she tripped and fell on shoes or bags that had been left on the floor and her arm went through a glass window, inches from the door. The school was aware of the recurring condition of personal items being left on the floor, but did not have adequate off-the-floor storage. Additionally, the school did not have safety glass in the window, despite having it in the nearby door. An arbitrator found the school to be two-thirds at fault and our client to be one-third at fault. Before the case was submitted to arbitration, an agreement was reached regarding damages and our client will collect the full amount of the available insurance, totaling $500,000.00.
