$3 Million Workers' Compensation Settlement
Iron Worker Who Fell Off Ladder Suffered Multiple Bone Breaks
Claims were filed on behalf of an injured Union ironworker who was installing second floor windows on a 40 foot ladder. While working on the job, the ladder slid out from underneath him and he fell onto a skid of cinder blocks and then bounced off onto the ground. The case involved both a workers' compensation claim as well as a third party action alleging that negligent construction conditions led to the devastating accident. As a result of the fall, the worker suffered a pulmonary embolism, a femur fracture and other issues requiring counselling. On behalf of our injured client, the attorneys were able to secure a workers' compensation settlement in the amount of $266,000 and a third party settlement in the amount of $2,750,000 for a total recovery in excess of $3,000,000.
