Two weeks ago, Glenn Dolan of Morgan Levine Dolan secured a $2,250,000.00 settlement on behalf of a non-union laborer who sustained permanent injuries to his neck, back and knees at a Jamaica Avenue construction site in Queens. The worker was standing on a pile of castings on the back of a dump truck, rigging the top casting to four chains hanging from a front end loader. With only three of the four chains rigged, the operator of the front end loader lifted the bucket, striking the laborer and knocking him up off the truck and onto the sidewalk below. Although the operator of the front end loader denied that he hit the laborer with the backhoe, claiming instead that the laborer had slipped from the side of the truck, after years of litigation and extensive negotiations, we were able negotiate this 2.25 million dollar settlement on the laborer’s behalf, allowing him to provide some level of financial security for himself, his wife and his young children.
