The Plaintiff slipped and fell outside her housing complex several days after a snowstorm, suffering severe dislocation and fractures of the right ankle involving both the tibia and fibula with fragmentation of the bone, also known as a trimalleolar fracture. This injury required surgery with two incision points for open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) using a plate and multiple screws.
