While installing fiber optic cable in the Hudson Valley, the contractor failed to properly secure a trailer that was used to hold the spools of cable before unhitching the trailer. Nearly a ton of weight fell on our client's foot, crushing his ankle. The contractor refused to accept any responsibility even though someone else was hurt in a similar way before. Finkelstein & Partners successfully sued the contractor with a Judge finding them 100% responsible for this preventable gravity related event.
