$6,000,000 Settlement – Work Injury
A union plumber was assigned to a construction site where an add-on was being built at an existing industrial building. In January of 2011, the plaintiff was on the jobsite completing interior plumbing work when he was told by the general contractor to complete some work requiring him to go to the roof. When he got outside, he encountered a snow and ice covered TPO roof. Within minutes of stepping on the roof, our client slipped and fell, significantly injuring his back, resulting in a laminectomy and fusion, and ultimately ending his career. The case settled against the general contractor, United Insulated Structures, Corp. for $5 million dollars and for $1 million dollars against Lino and Poli, the client’s employer. Lino and Poli also waived their $945,133.99 Workman’s Compensation Lien.
