$2.1 Million Settlement

Back To All Results

Our client was a 56-year-old married male employed as a union sheet metal worker. While working at a construction site in New York City, he was standing on a 6-foot A-frame ladder installing duct work. Initially he and his co-worked wanted to use a lift to reach the ceiling to perform the job, but the room wasn’t large enough. While on the ladder, our client fell off, struck his head on the ground, and lost consciousness. We claimed a violation of Labor Law §240(1). As a result, he suffered a traumatic brain injury, an avulsion fracture of his thumb, a labral tear, and a rotator cuff tear. Because of his injuries, he was unable to ever return to construction work
