$3,200,000 – Labor Law 240 – Back Injury
Our client, a laborer, was caused to fall four feet down to the ground when the scaffold he was working on suddenly moved and shook. They sustained injuries to their lower back, requiring lumbar spine surgery. In addition, they couldn’t return to work.
Defendants claimed that our client’s injuries and complaints concerning their back were degenerative in nature and unrelated to the accident. In addition, the defendants claimed our client made a great recovery and was able to return to work with no restrictions.
Judd F. Kleeger, Partner, settled this matter prior to jury selection for $3,200,000
