We settled a case for a construction worker who was injured while unloading steel rods from a flatbed truck. An unsecured load of the rebar rolled off, repeatedly striking the young man and crushing his legs. He underwent several surgeries, a bone graft, and replacement of a femoral rod. He also suffered permanent knee and ligament damage.Our workplace injury attorneys filed a lawsuit against the trucking company, its owner and driver, and the subcontractor handling the rebar installation. Under New York Labor law, we also filed suit against the work site's general contractor. Our client obtained a $1.45 million settlement for lost wages, pain, and disabilities.
