When it comes to construction, every detail matters - and not just for aesthetics. Our client's story serves as a compelling testament to this truth.
While installing a speaker at a swanky Long Island restaurant, our client found himself in a dire situation due to a defective ladder. The faulty equipment led to a fall that ended with a harsh collision of his head against the unforgiving sidewalk, resulting in a traumatic brain injury.
We sprang into action, filing a lawsuit in the Queens Supreme Court under the scaffold law, Labor Law 240.
Our tenacious litigation approach swiftly brought the defendants to the negotiating table. In an intense negotiation, personal injury lawyers Steven Gershowitz, Howard Raphaelson, and Andrew Levine leveraged their combined expertise to secure a $5 million construction injury settlement.
This hard-won victory not only ensured that our client's future medical and financial needs are taken care of, but also reinforced the absolute necessity of safety in all aspects of construction.
