Injured Plaintiff Awarded $13 Million for Injuries Sustained After Fall off Ladder

Hach & Rose, LLP, achieved a $13 million verdict on behalf of a 56-year-old engineer’s assistant and his wife. Our firm successfully contended that the plaintiff’s employer violated § 240 (1) of the New York Labor Law.

The New York Labor Law § 240 (1) requires that contractors and property owners protect the safety of workers that are engaged in building, demolition, painting, cleaning, or other construction work that is being performed at an elevated height.

In this case, the plaintiff was painting the loading dock of a hotel when he fell from his ladder onto the sidewalk. He sustained fractures to his skull, spine, ribs, and right shoulder. The plaintiff was not provided with safety equipment, which could have prevented his fall or his injuries, nor did his employer provide a means to secure the ladder.

This was a complicated case involving a seven week trial, which included several expert witnesses. Ultimately, the jury determined that the plaintiff was entitled to over $13 million dollars in monetary damages.
