NY Elevator Accident - $350,000 Recovery

Premises Liabilty Settlement for Worker Injured in Elevator Fall

WRSH associate Joseph Stoduto was able to obtain a settlement of $350,000 on behalf of a 55 year old building maintenance worker from New Jersey. The man was riding in a freight elevator in the building in which he was employed when the elevator malfunctioned, falling several feet and knocking him to the ground, causing him to sustain very serious injuries to his neck and back.

Our firm brought an action against the managing agent for the building and the company who was hired to provide maintenance services for the elevator in question. Through the use of site inspections and liability experts, we were able to prove that the accident occurred solely as a result of negligence in the way that the elevator and its components were maintained by the defendants.

The defendants, by their attorneys, engaged in motion practice in an attempt to get our client's case dismissed, but through extensive legal research and opposition to the defendants' motions, we were able to defeat these motions and guarantee our client his day in court.

The case was scheduled for trial. Joseph was able to negotiate a settlement in the amount of $350,000 for our client's past and future pain and suffering.
