$450,000 Fractured Skull

Plaintiff worked for a company that serviced garage doors and was attempting to repair an overhead steel garage door by using a crow-bar while standing on a tool box that was located inside the bed of the company’s flat-bed truck. While he and his co-worker pulled with the crow-bar, he lost his balance and fell, sustaining a fracture to his skull that required surgery in order to reduce the swelling. Our client’s co-worker testified that he had warned our client not to stand atop the toolbox but we produced a witness who testified that he saw two men standing atop the toolbox and reaching upwards in an awkward fashion. The case proceeded to mediation and was settled for $450,000.
