$975,000 Settlement : Union Telephone Worker Slipped On Ice At Work

When we arrive on the job before sunrise, we expect the Company and the maintenance company would maintain the parking lot so it is not hazardous to walk across to get to the garage.  Unfortunately that is not what happened and our client could not see the sheet of ice that was not treated as he was walking to the garage.  After his fall he called our firm and we filed a Workers’ Compensation claim to make sure all his medical bills and loss wages were paid.  However, given the significant injury to his shoulder we also sued the owner of the property and their maintenance company for failing to properly maintain the parking lot after a storm.   Two weeks before the trial was ready to start the case was settled for $975,000 by Managing Partner Andrew Finkelstein and Trial Attorney Michael Feldman.
