$2.7 Million Settlement : Workplace Accident

Construction sites are always dangerous and New York has special laws to protect workers. General contractors must provide safety devices to prevent falling objects. Unfortunately, the General Contractor at a work site in Syracuse chose not to provide the very safety netting that would have protected our client. After a tool fell and struck our client in the shoulder, he was unable to work again in the construction industry following multiple surgeries. The case was settled just prior to trial by Trial Partner Victoria Lightcap.
