Maintenance Worker Slips On Icy, Leaking Roof – Recovers $600,000 at Mediation

A flat roof on a drug and rehab facility in Columbia County always leaked. The facilities manager told one of the maintenance workers to go on the roof and fix the leak. With his hammer, finishing nails, screws and tarp the maintenance worker made his way to the roof. There was a lot of ice on the roof and the worker slipped and fell off the edge of the roof six feet down to a lower roofline. As a result of the fall, the workers’ injured neck required surgery. The case was settled at mediation by Trial Partner Ken Fromson and Managing Attorney Elizabeth Wolff.
