$75,000 – As part of her housekeeping duties, our client was outside blowing leaves.

Settled. As part of her housekeeping duties, our client was outside blowing leaves. As she stepped backwards onto the patio step, a loose stone gave way, causing her to fall backwards onto the patio below. She suffered a distal radius fracture with comminution and an associated ulnar styloid fracture and underwent an open reduction internal fixation of the left wrist. The homeowner had been aware of this loose stone for some time. He had a duty to maintain his property, to warn of the dangerous condition that was present, to repair the dangerous condition, and to otherwise ensure the safety of all invitees on the property.
