The trial team of Michael Rose and David Cheverie from Hach & Rose, LLP secured a $12.8 million dollar verdict on behalf of a security officer in New York City. The officer was injured by a negligently installed door closing mechanism in the new wing of a hospital that was under construction. The individual suffered a severe neck injury as she was passing through the doorway.
The six-week trial put the spotlight on the contractors hired to install the door. While they claimed they were following the instructions of the architect, so they were not responsible for the injury, the team at Hach & Rose were able to prove that it was, in fact, their negligence that caused the injury to the worker. The jury deliberated for less than 30 minutes before delivering the verdict in favor of the client.
