$1.5 Million Settlement : Communication Specialist Accident

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. The Judge agreed had the contractor used basic cribbing to support the trailer before unhitching it, this event never would have happened. Ultimately, just before trial, an offer of $1,500,000 was accepted by our client.The team for this case included Ronald Rosenkranz, Andrew Finkelstein, David Akerib, Duncan Clark, and Andrew Spitz
