Balkan & Patterson Attorneys Settle Trip and Fall Case for Lantana Client

Balkan & Patterson recently achieved a settlement for an elderly client who was severely injured after tripping and falling at the Station House Restaurant in Lantana.

Then age 82, the client was dining with family when she tripped on a ramp that was shown to be in violation of code regulations and virtually hidden from view with improper carpeting. She suffered a broken elbow that required surgery and extensive rehabilitation.

“We are grateful for this settlement, which will assist our client in recovering from the injuries she suffered in this fall, as well as prevent others from similar falls,” said attorney Adam M. Balkan of the Boca Raton law firm of Balkan & Patterson, LLP. “The ramp was essentially a hidden trap door, and it’s surprising that this is the first accident to have occurred. I am thankful that this danger has been eliminated.”

Since her fall, the restaurant has corrected the ramp to prevent other injuries from occurring. Balkan & Patterson went to trial with the client, and the restaurant chose to settle the case during trial to avoid a jury verdict.
