Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro and Halperin, LLP attorneys Bryce Moses and Noah Katz obtained a settlement in the amount of $1,750,000 on behalf of a non-union demolition worker who was struck by a bathroom wall under demolition. The defendants argued that the wall was intended to be demolished, and that the plaintiff should not have been near the wall under demolition. Bryce and Noah showed through testimony that the process of demolishing the wall compromised the strength of the wall at the moment the plaintiff was near the wall and that the demolition should have been done in a safer manner notwithstanding the plaintiff’s proximity to the wall. The plaintiff, as a result of being struck by the wall, sustained injuries to his shoulder, requiring arthroscopic surgery, and his lower back, requiring a fusion. The case settled prior to trial, based upon the manner in which the wall was demolished and the testimony obtained by our firm. A motion to dismiss the case was pending at the time of the settlement.
