NYC Construction Accident Attorney

Construction Accident – $1,600,000 Settlement

WRSH Partner, Kenneth J. Halperin obtained a $1,600,000 settlement for our client, a fifty five year old construction worker who fell approximately six feet from a ladder while he was cutting a pipe in the ceiling above him. While our client was cutting the pipe, the pipe fell and struck the ladder, causing the ladder to collapse.

WRSH Attorney Mitch Kahn established during deposition questioning that the general contractor failed to follow proper safety standards, which included providing the plaintiff with clamps to prevent the pipes from falling after he made the cuts. Additionally, they failed to provide a co-worker to hold the ladder or other safety devices to ensure that the ladder remained erect while our client was on it. As a result of the accident, our client sustained a fractured wrist that required surgery, a herniated disc in his lower back that required surgery and a torn ligament in his knee which also required surgery.
