$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.

Fellows Hymowitz took on a difficult case which ended in a positive resolution. The professionalism and dedication of the entire staff was overwhelming. They handled my case as if it was there own. There was no double talk or redundant paper work. They kept the case moving forward in a positive flow with continuous communication and explanation of each step. I highly recommend this firm.
