Our client was visiting a relative at an apartment building in Brooklyn which was owned by the New York City Housing Authority.  He was on his way down the stairs to exit the building when he tripped and fell on a broken, cracked and defective step.  As a result, he injured his knee and his shoulder and required surgery.  Justin Blitz, Esq. settled the case with the attorneys for the New York City Housing Authority shortly before the trial was scheduled to begin for $110,000.
