$7,250,000 Recovery for Defective Scaffolding Injury in New York

Construction Accident - Work Injury - Scaffolding Defect

Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro & Halperin partners Phil Russotti and Ken Halperin settled the case of a union-affiliated painter in his 40s, who was injured while working at a chemical storage facility in the city of Niagra Falls. While painting a large chemical tank, our client fell as he ascended the attached ladder that provided access to the scaffold's platform. Because our client had not been provided a harness or any other safety device that could have prevented his fall, he plummeted 12 feet and sustained brain damage, including memory loss, concentration impairment, speech impairment, anxiety and depression, as well as a torn hip labrum, and a torn rotator cuff.

Phil and Ken would have introduced evidence of $2,400,000 for loss of earnings. Their meticulous preparation and relentless efforts resulted in the case being settled during the pendency of the defendant's motion for summary judgment, for $7,250,000.

This dedication to advocating on behalf of our clients resulted in an impressive settlement and is what sets WRSH apart from other firms.
