$3,000 Settlement in Slip and Fall Case

On January 22, 2001, the District of Columbia agreed to pay $3,000 to a prisoner who slipped and fell after stepping into a drainage hole that lacked a protective grill.

While housed at the maximum security facility CB#1 at Lorton Reformatory, Darryl Love-El slipped and fell, injuring his left ankle and aggravating his left knee and femur and hip. Love-El alleged that he reported the incident, but was denied medical attention. The District settled for $3,000. Love-El acted pro se. See: Love-El v. Moore, No. 98-0548 (D.C. Sup. Ct.).
