James was delivering his monthly rent check to his landlord one evening. As he left the front door, he walked along the sidewalk and fell on ice. The landlord’s wife admitted they had a drainage problem that caused water to flow across the sidewalk and would often refreeze during the cold nights. James had previously broken his arm and had a plate in his arm. When he fell on that same arm, the humerus bone in his upper arm snapped just above the plate that was already in his arm. Surgery was performed to take out the previous plate and screws and put a longer plate and more screws to secure the new arm fracture. Other than occasional discomfort and feelings of tightness in the muscle near the fracture, James had no residuals from the injury. Partner Rich Ruohonen settled the case for $120,000.
