Long Island, NY Personal Injury Law Firm Obtains $1.3 Million for Injured Construction Worker
GARDEN CITY, N.Y., February 7, 2018 (Newswire.com) - The Long Island personal injury law firm of Sackstein, Sackstein & Lee, LLP is pleased to announce the settlement of a construction site accident case for $1.3 million.
The firm represented a 41-year-old Asian male asbestos-removal-worker who was injured at an upstate New York construction site. The man fell from a 16-foot extension ladder, while affixing a heavy tarp across the top of a 50-foot long, 13-foot high, 100-yard dumpster. The purpose of the tarp was to prevent asbestos materials from spewing out of the dumpster. The injured construction worker suffered injuries to his back, knees and shoulder necessitating surgery.
Arguing that the general contractor violated New York State’s Labor Law by failing to provide the proper equipment for the firm’s client, Sackstein, Sackstein & Lee, LLP attorneys obtained a $1.3 million settlement prior to trial. The law firm utilized two experts, an economist and a vocational rehabilitation specialist, to establish the extent of the injured construction worker’s loss.
Mark Sackstein, Esq. the firm’s managing partner stated, “Our goal is always to obtain maximum compensation to cover loss of income, medical bills, incurred and to be incurred, and current and future pain and suffering.” He added, “In this case, we were pleased to have reached a fair settlement prior to trial.”
