Confidential – 52 year old woman fractures right shoulder after slipping on ice in a parking lot.

Settlement. A 52-year-old woman parked in the lot of a local store. She did not know that their practice was to pile plowed snow in an area of the parking lot that was higher than the rest of the lot, and that the snow had then thawed, run over the low part of the lot, and re-froze, creating an unnatural accumulation of ice (black ice). She exited her vehicle and immediately fell and suffered a fractured right shoulder involving immediate surgery. She could not testify with certainty from where the ice came and did not report the incident to the store for two days. CONFIDENTIAL Insurance info.
