$1.4 Million Dollar Recovery for Elevator Mechanic Who Fell

On the Job Injury - Slip and Fall

Bryce Moses’ client was working on renovations in a building in upper Manhattan. After returning from lunch, he slipped on an open elevator floor, wet from the rain, and lost his balance. He grabbed onto a counterweight cable in the adjacent elevator shaft, and at that moment, the counterweight came down and smashed into his hand and caused him to fall 10 feet to the bottom of the shaft. Two fingers were amputated and his wrist was fractured. He underwent hand surgery to repair as much damage as possible and now must undergo occupational therapy.

Bryce had to try the case two times for our client. The first trial was interrupted by the 9/11 attacks and ended in a mistrial. Before jury selection began for the retrial, the case was settled for $1.4 Million.
