$2.75 Million Settlement at Mediation : Injured on the Job

Newburgh, NY Our client, an 18-year-old man, was working on the dock in Newburgh unloading a trailer of steel beams when the boom of a large crane gave way and crashed down upon his left leg, crushing it. The owner of the trailer was his employer, however the crane was being leased to another company who was in charge of its operation. In this case the defendant knew that the crane boom was not working properly, yet despite that they allowed a worker to get into the cab while the boom was positioned above our client and while the crane was running. Our claim was that the failure of the crane was a violation of New York’s Labor Law. Our client suffered a great deal, having undergone numerous surgeries to salvage the multiple fractures in the leg, and may still need a hip replacement surgery in the future as well. After the accident he was able to return to college and received a degree in Business. Attorney: George M. Levy
