In preparation for the next day’s work, our client was moving a “roustabout”, a small derrick on wheels used to raise and position large heavy pipes. He pushed it through a large puddle, and stepped on a small piece of reinforcing steel which was submerged and invisible in the water, left behind by a pipefitter working there the day before.
Our client fell forward, extended his left hand to break his fall, causing injury in his left wrist, which progressively worsened and subsequently required four surgical procedures involving the hand, wrist and elbow. Furthermore, he developed herniated discs and injury to the nerve connected to his left arm for which surgery is pending.
The settlement was made with eight different defendants for a total package of $1,250,000.
Car accident victim suffering severe injuries awarded $250,000
A New Jersey driver swerved into an improperly installed guardrail/partition which, upon impact, impaled the vehicle and severed our client’s left leg. Despite a series of complex circumstances impacting liability, and our client passing away due to an unrelated medical condition, we settled the case for $250,000.
