Al Sharpton’s daughter gets $95K settlement for sprained ankle

Daddy taught his daughter well…

The apple didn’t fall far from the tree…

From NY Post: She is her father’s daughter.

Dominique Sharpton, daughter of shakedown artist Al Sharpton, scored a $95,000 settlement from the city over a sprained ankle — even though she had posted snaps of herself on social media climbing a mountain in Bali and strutting around in high heels just seven months after the fall.

It took nearly four years, but de Blasio administration lawyers finally threw in the towel in the case.

“After a thorough evaluation, we determined that settling this case was in the best interest of the city,” said a spokesman for the city Law Department.

The 32-year-old Brooklyn resident, who is the eldest daughter of the activist and TV host, sued the city in April 2015 for $5 million after “severely” injuring her right leg on cracked pavement crossing Broadway at Broome Street in 2014.

“I sprained my ankle real bad lol,” she wrote in an Instagram post after the Oct. 2, 2014, stumble.

Her suit said she was in “permanent physical pain,” but the fall didn’t stop her from wearing high heels, mounting a ladder to decorate a Christmas tree and even hiking for two hours up a mountain during a girls getaway to Indonesia in May 2016.

She posted snaps of herself performing the feats on social media.

The case was settled after the city admitted it was aware of the cracked pavement in the crosswalk but did nothing to fix it.

Reached by phone Friday, Dominique Sharpton wasn’t even aware that a deal had been reached. “I don’t really know the particulars at this time,” she told The Post.

Her lawyer, John Elefterakis, said the “case was always about fair compensation for Ms. Sharpton’s ankle injury, which we contend was a result of the city’s negligence.”

“Despite unfair treatment in the press, this settlement reflects the reasonableness of Ms. Sharpton, who was willing to settle her meritorious claim for a fair amount based on all factors,” he said.

  1. Like father, like daughter — including the ugly mug.
    She learned from a master scammer.

  2. The SHARPTONGUES are the best swindlers in the market, the pappy is a snake in the grass and his hissing daughter not far behind. Too bad the cracked pavement didn’t swallow the pit viper completely.

  3. Kevin J Lankford

    I guess she knows not to let her daddy behind her coming down stairs.

  4. Rev Al is looking frail and emaciated these days.

  5. Wow! Just look at what a corrupt politician can do for you in NYC these days!

  6. Brawley Part Two? Just askin’.

  7. I expect the Sharptons to be money-grubbing grifters, but what about the City? What about Deblasio who, newly minted, ordered the City to settle with the five punks arrested for the Central Park jogger episode? That was a real hoot.

  8. Only 2 working parts on a Sharpton… The mouth and the anus which are interchangable…. Does not surprise me….

  9. She’s gotta set her sights higher. Chelsea got an $899/k//yr right out of college. Plus a $2.m apartment in Manhattan. At least daddy should be able to help with a tax attorney.

  10. She certainly inherited her fathers’s good looks and honesty.

  11. I hope she gets a boob job and a tummy tuck, the boobs look like the lactating monkeys and the stomach is pure grrrrreeeeease!
