Verdicts & Settlements

$600,000.00 Awarded to Construction Worker

A 37 year-old construction worker suffered an accident on a work site in East Amwell, NJ when the floor upon which his ladder was resting gave way and he fell to the floor below. He suffered an achilles tendon rupture and reconstruction. The plaintiff was able to return to work in his current employ after approximately two years out.

 

The defendant subcontractor carpenter had installed the temporary floor improperly. The plaintiff was employed by the general contractor who does maintain overall safety for the site and should have inspected the work done by its sub. Despite the workers' compensation bar (not allowing the plaintiff to collect from his employer in a third party matter), the plaintiff still resolved the case favorably. The case settled before trial for $600,000.00.

 

The plaintiff was represented by attorney Sherri Warfel who concentrates her practice in the area of accident and injury law. She can be reached at swarfel@pralaw.com.
