$958,000 Neck and Head Injuries

The plaintiff was a laborer who was struck on the back of the head by a falling cinderblock, while working for a sub-contractor on the construction of a building. As a result, our client sustained soft tissue trauma to the neck and head causing him to have headaches, neck pain and sleep difficulties. We successfully argued that the building owner and general contractor violated the NYS Labor Law in failing to protect workers at ground level from the dangers of falling materials and judgment was entered against the defendants. The case was settled for a total of $958,000 (including $60,000 reduction of the workers’ compensation insurance lien).
