Another Seven Figure Settlement From Morgan Levine Dolan

This month we secured a $1,525,000.00 settlement from the City of New York and another defendant for a laborer who sustained back injuries at a Bronx construction site on East 75th Street.  The laborer, who was paid in cash, maintained that an unshored trench in the roadway collapsed, causing him to fall approximately six to eight feet, sustaining his injuries.  The general contractor at the site insisted that the trench did not collapse, and testified that he had seen the laborer deliberately throw himself into the excavation.  Despite the contractor’s somewhat astonishing allegations, after years of litigation, we were able to negotiate over 1.5 million dollars in restitution for the worker.
