$1,100,000.00 settlement was reached after mediation. In this case a 54 year old carpenter who was working on a construction project of a building in New York City tripped and fell on a loose roofing material that had become worn and caused him to fall and suffer extensive back injuries requiring two back surgeries and extensive physical therapy and pain medication. Vocational Rehabilitation experts were hired by the firm to establish his very limited ability to do any kind of meaningful work and to estimate the cost of future medical care. An Economist was hired as an expert on the value of his lost wages, loss of union benefits such as health insurance, fringe benefits, pension contributions and cost of living increases. Typically when injured at work one cannot sue his employer and his only remedy is to secure Workers Compensation Benefits. However by taking advantage of special provisions of the NYS Labor Law we were able to secure the $1,100,000 in addition to his obtaining of workers compensation benefits.
