$2.95 Million Settlement - Construction Worker Injured in Fall From Ladder

David M. Hoffman, attorney with Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro & Halperin, LLP, obtained a settlement in the amount of $2,950,000 for a 40-year-old construction worker who was injured when he fell from a ladder at a Queens construction site.

The accident occurred while the plaintiff was performing work on the exterior portion of the building. The plaintiff slipped as he descended an unsecured ladder, and fell approximately 8 feet. As a result of this incident, the plaintiff suffered serious injuries to his lower back, shoulder, and wrist, which required lumbar spinal surgery, arthroscopic shoulder surgery, and wrist surgery.

The absence of any proper safety devices to prevent his fall was in direct violation of Labor Law § 240. David successfully moved for summary judgment pursuant to Labor Law ยง 240(1). David managed to resolve this matter at mediation.
