A former competitive skier who slipped and fell in a hotel lobby agreed to a $4.75 million settlement in her Middlesex County suit, Dembitzky v. Hampton Inn Woodbridge, which was approved last Dec. 18.
When plaintiff Julie Dembitzky of Mirror Lake, New Hampshire, stepped off an elevator at the Hampton Inn in Woodbridge on March 26, 2015, the floor was wet, and she fell and landed on her right knee. Dembitzky was born without a left leg, and her prosthetic leg was broken when she fell. She suffered no broken bones but was diagnosed with a permanent injury to the articular cartilage of the right knee, requiring three surgical procedures, the suit claimed.
