A typical workday on a bustling Brooklyn construction site transformed into a scene straight out of a nightmare for our client.
While working on a major construction project, our client stepped onto an unsecured plywood board.
Like a sinister seesaw, it tipped, plunging him through the floor. With lightning-quick reflexes, he managed to extend his arms and catch himself just in time, narrowly avoiding the steel rebar below and the steep edge of the building.
However, this quick-thinking move came at a cost. He suffered severe shoulder tears in both arms that required arthroscopic surgery.The case found its way to the Bronx Supreme Court, where we took on the fight on our client's behalf.
In a mediation led by Andrew Levine, we were able to secure a $2 million settlement for our client.
Construction site accidents can be life-changing, and no one should face the aftermath alone.
