Streed represented a hair salon stylist who slipped on an accumulation of glare ice outside the building where she worked. Her ankle bones were shattered and dislocated and the surgery to repair the many fractures was very complicated. She was unable to return to work for nearly a full year. The building owner initially denied any responsibility claiming the walkway had been fully cleared and salted before the light dusting of snow fell (and covered up the glare ice).
Streed was able to locate security video from a camera mounted outside the building that clearly showed the building owner’s maintenance crew had NOT done anything to address the unnatural accumulation of dangerous ice which created a dangerous hidden hazard which is what his client encountered when she walked onto the walkway that day. Litigation led to a settlement of over $250,000 for Streed’s client.
