Falls on ice are common in the St. Louis area due to the snowy and icy weather that occurs every winter. A slip and fall on ice often causes a sudden loss of balance which can cause severe pressure on legs. In this case, the injured party's ankle injury required an surgical intervention in the form of an open reduction with internal fixation. Even though the claim was initially denied, we were able to obtain a significant settlement for the right ankle injury caused by the negligent snow removal company and negligent property owner.
