Janitorial Worker in Local 32BJ Union gets 1.5 Million Dollar Settlement

Another client of Morgan Levine Dolan, a janitorial worker in Local 32BJ union,  gets 1.5 million dollars in a settlement.  After being struck by a forklift while walking on the sidewalk, this union member injured her neck and lower back.  The attorneys at Morgan Levine filed a lawsuit against the company who employed the forklift driver and the owner of the store where the items were being delivered.  After the defendants refused to offer any compensation to our client, her case was litigated in Court. 

The defendants tried to put the blame on everyone but themselves.  They tried to say their own employee wasn’t actually an employee.  They tried to say our client was at fault, even though she was hit from behind as she walked innocently on the sidewalk.  The defendants even tried to get access to our client’s Facebook page to see if there were any pictures of her doing heavy lifting after her injuries.  In the end, Duane Morgan and Jared Levine were able to convince the defendants to pay 1.5 million dollars in compensation for this horrific accident.  New rules and procedures were put in place to avoid this kind of accident happening again in the future.
