$1,000,000 Settlement; slip and fall premises liability. D.S., a 60 year old bus driver, volunteered as an instructor at a summer camp for inner-city kids in the Angeles Forest. While walking to the dining hall he stepped on a soft patch of dirt in a camp road which had recently been repaired, and fell, breaking his left leg. The fracture was severe, requiring the insertion of a rod and multiple other surgeries, and D.S. suffered a permanent limp. The camp and the contractor who’d performed the road repairs denied responsibility for D.S.’s injuries, claiming it was all his fault. Kuzyk Law took the case, and after filing a lawsuit, discovered that the hole D.S. had stepped in was an uncovered vault containing a valve for a recently installed fire hydrant, and that the cover was being used as a doorstop in a nearby building. After this revelation, the insurance companies for the camp and the contractor jointly paid $1,000,000 to settle the case.
