$525,000 Construction Accident

September 29th, 2011 Results,Uncategorized

A construction worker suffered a neck injury requiring surgery when he fell off an improperly guarded makeshift scaffold. We defeated defenses that the general contractor did not know that an accident occurred or that the victim worked at the construction site. It was also claimed that our client was not eligible for favorable treatment under New York’s “Scaffold Law” contrary to legal argument we advanced and confirmed by trial and appellate courts.
