Hach & Rose, LLP help construction accident victim win large verdict
In 2007, construction worker Victor Munoz was working at a Times Square hotel when he suffered traumatic brain injuries as a result of falling from a ladder at the site.
Mr. Munoz was near the hotel loading dock, painting a beam, when the ladder became unsteady, causing him to lose his balance. He fell and landed on the concrete below, striking his head on the pavement. Sadly, this devastating work-related accident caused Mr. Munoz to suffer permanent brain damage, resulting in a loss of hearing on his right side and the inability to keep his balance.
The New York personal injury lawyers of Hach & Rose, LLP, represented Victor and his wife, Elvia, in a lawsuit against the Hilton Hotel Corporation. The jury in the case determined that the hotel property owners were negligent in their safety procedures, and therefore awarded $13,020,857 to Mr. and Mrs. Munoz. The award includes compensation for medical bills, lost wages, as well as pain and suffering.
