A jury awarded $62 million to a Chinese immigrant worker who suffered from a traumatic brain injury and other serious health conditions after a construction accident in 2008, The New York Post reported on December 18.

Considered the largest verdict for a single plaintiff lawsuit in Queens, the multi-million dollar payout consists of payments for past and future pain and suffering and for previous medical costs. Zeng Guang Lin, 26, suffered from serious injuries after plunging 20 feet off a roof while on duty in The Bronx. The jury was convinced that the construction company fell short in providing Lin with appropriate safety devices that could have prevented the incident.

Lin’s testimony was entirely in Mandarin, as he does not speak English.
