$20,000,000 – Falling Object Accident – Head, Neck & Back Injuries

HKD, Senior Trial Attorney, Jordan Hecht, obtained a massive $20,000,000.00 settlement on the eve of trial, for a construction worker who was injured after being struck by a falling beam. The client suffered fractures in his neck that required multiple surgeries, a fractured jaw and a traumatic brain injury.

HKD won summary judgment on the issue of liability against the owner and general contractor under the New York State Labor Law and the case was set to proceed solely on the issue of damages.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
