A 50 year old wan was walking on the sidewalk in downtown Skokie when she slipped and fell on ice on the sidewalk in front of a restaurant. The accident occurred in February. We were able to prove that shortly before the accident, an employee of the restaurant had washed the outside of the windows, causing an accumulation of water that froze. This dangerous condition caused our client to fall, fracturing her ankle. She underwent surgery to repair the ankle fracture. The case settled for$233,000 with the insurer for the restaurant.
