Million Dollar Jury Verdict for New York Injured Construction Worker

By Michael Joseph on December 03, 2011

New York construction accident lawyer, Michael Joseph won a major victory last week in a hotly contested trial in New York Supreme Court in Manhattan. Our client was injured when he climbed a scaffold and stepped on a plank and the plank cracked causing our client to fall. Our New York construction accident lawyers established that the building owner breached his duties under Labor Law 240 by permitting 2×4 planks to be used instead of OSHA rated planking.

Following a week long jury trial, the jury awarded over nine hundred thousand dollars and since we won the liability case over a year ago, our client is entitled to a year of interest at nine percent, which puts the total verdict over one million dollars. The defense in this case made a low ball offer of one hundred and seventy five thousand dollars and refused to make any higher offer. Our New York personal injury lawyers obtained a verdict of over 800 percent higher than the insurance company’s offer.
