Lawyer Turns to Finkelstein & Partners to Help Client
When a Hudson Valley lawyers client told him he fell from a ladder when he was building the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, he turned to Finkelstein & Partners for help. We quickly filed a claim against the owners of the Barclays Center, as well as the general contractor on the job. New York construction law requires owners and general contractors provide fall protection for workers exposed to height related injuries. Had our client been provided a mobile scissor lift for the job he would not have fallen 15 feet and broken his big toe. The break was so significant he required surgery to repair the bones. Unfortunately he developed traumatic arthritis which prevented him from returning to his job. The case was settled for $1,800,000 by Andrew Finkelstein.
