Judge suffers slip and fall in New York courthouse

Posted in Slip and Fall Accidents,Trip and Fall Accidents on October 12, 2012

Slip and fall injuries aren’t exclusive to broken sidewalks, construction sites, or slippery indoor floors. Many times, slip and fall accidents can happen outdoors on even the best maintained surfaces. This truth was realized by Judge Cheryl Austin who, when rushing from the courthouse to her chambers slipped on the granite courthouse steps which were wet from a recent rainstorm.

Witnesses say that the judge slipped and fell and was in a lot of pain. An ambulance was on the scene within five minutes. The judge didn’t sustain any broken bones, but she did sustain severe damage to the ligaments and tendons in her ankle.
